East meets West with Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas smothered in TO LIVE FOR Sweet Chili Coconut Honey Lime Sauce! One of my favorite recipes to date – you don’t want to skip these!
Asian Mexican fusion has to be one of my most favorite cuisines from my Teriyaki Chicken Tacos to Sweet and Sour Chicken Egg Rolls and Sesame Chicken Egg Rolls to SweetFire Chipotle Chicken and many more. The two cuisines might appear vastly different but they have strikingly similar flavor profiles (thus my two favs!:), that lend themselves beautifully to intermingling and creating unique, enticing flavor combinations like these delectable Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas!
So if you are a little apprehensive about “how good” these will be – please rest assured that if you like honey lime and coconut, you will go crazy over these enchiladas. In the best kind of crazy way.
The idea for these otherworldy creamy chicken enchiladas came from my Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas that are tangy, sweet and spicy and still one of Patrick’s favorite recipes of all time. Instead of the Salsa Verde based sauce, I swapped it for Asian Sweet Chili Sauce which is whisked with honey, lime and a rainbow of spices. You then reserve some of this sauce to mix with your chicken filling, and the rest you simmer with coconut milk to create a flavor bursting creamy sauce to smother your chicken enchiladas.
The filling itself of tender juicy, pineapple infused chicken is created by simmering your chicken with a can of pineapple in its juice and then adding some carrots for a refreshing, textured filling.
Sprinkle your filling and your smothered chicken enchiladas with Monterey Jack Cheese and you are 30 minutes away from East meets West meets your mouth.
