Spread 1/2 the chicken mixture over tortilla layer. Sprinkle 1/3 of the grated cheese over chicken layer. Dip more tortillas in enchilada sauce mixture and arrange over grated cheese layer. Spoon 2 to 3 spoonful enchilada sauce mixture over tortilla layer. Repeat layering with remaining chicken and 1/3 of the cheese, ending with a layer of tortillas. Pour any remaining enchilada sauce mixture over tortillas and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
