  5. Divide chicken mixture evenly between tortillas and roll tightly. Place seam side down into the baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over the tortillas and top with cheese

  6. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 15–20 minutes. Serve with a sprinkle of remaining green onion.
