1) Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2) In a large nonstick skillet, saute the onion and bell pepper in the oil over medium heat for 5 minutes.
3) Stir in the tomatoes, olives, raisins, almonds, capers, thyme, ginger, and cinnamon, then stir and cook over a medium heat for another 2 to 3 minutes.
4) Turn off the heat, stir in the chicken, then sprinkle with the salt and pepper and stir in the chopped parsley.
5) In a large shallow baking dish or 2 medium-size baking dishes, spread 2 cups of the marinara sauce over the bottom.
6) Spoon 1/4 cup of the picadillo 1 inch from the edge of a tortilla. Roll up and place with the seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the rest of tortillas and picadillo.
7) Pour rest of the 4 cups sauce evenly over the enchiladas, then sprinkle evenly with the grated cheese evenly on top.
8) Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until the top is slightly browned and the cheese is melted.
9) Serve immediately on individual serving plates.
