  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Place chicken in a baking dish and coat with 1/4 cup wing sauce. Cover with bell pepper and onion. Drizzle honey over the chicken, bell pepper, and onion. Cover with foil.
  3. Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Step 4

    Combine 1 1/2 avocados, Greek yogurt, and salsa verde in a blender. Pulse until sauce is mostly smooth but retains some texture.
  5. Step 5

    Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Drain drippings, reserving bell pepper and onion. Shred chicken using tongs or a fork. Mix in remaining 1/4 cup wing sauce.
  6. Step 6

    Lightly coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with olive oil. Place a small amount of shredded chicken on each tortilla. Add some of the bell pepper and onion. Roll up each tortilla and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  7. Step 7

    Spoon some sauce over each enchilada; spread out so that each is lightly coated. Reserve some of the sauce for serving. Sprinkle most of the grated Manchego cheese over the top.
  8. Step 8

    Bake until cheese is thoroughly melted, about 10 minutes. Spoon a bit more sauce over each serving; add a bit more grated cheese. Add some of the remaining avocado slices to each plate.
