No-Fry Chicken Parmesan Enchiladas

I was recently contacted by Ragú® and asked if I wanted to put a new spin on an old classic recipe. What a fantastic idea! While we have our top 10–the same recipes we make over and over again–it’s good to shake things up a bit and change it all up. I was excited to take on this challenge!

My mission, if I chose to accept it, was to update No-Fry Chicken Parmesan. This is a perennial favorite in our house–and sorely in need of an upgrade. What could I do to this old faithful to make it new again while still utilizing Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce? I was about to find out…

The great thing about Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is that each jar is made with 11 juicy tomatoes, making it its richest, thickest recipe. My kids love the flavor and I love all those veggies packed into each jar. You know you’re getting something good when you pour Ragú® over it!

So what did I make? I went completely in a different direction with my No-Fry Chicken Parmesan and transformed it into No-Fry Chicken Parmesan Enchiladas. Adios to the familiar breaded breasts baked in a dish! Instead, I started with shredded rotisserie chicken, significantly cutting down on the baking time. Mix that with some sauce and cheese, roll it up in flour tortillas, and drench in Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce and cheese. In no time at all, dinner is served. The kids LOVED this twist and I liked that I could make a bunch of them at once and save them for lunches throughout the week. This is not your mama’s Chicken Parmesan…and that is more than okay!
