bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
fat free condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 ounce) can
diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, drained
1 (14.5 ounce) package
low-fat baked tortilla chips
shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (6 ounce) can
reduced fat sour cream
chopped fresh chives
This was nice - somewhat like a taco salad. I used less cheddar, only about 1/4 cup of sliced olives, and a chopped green onion instead of the chives. The tortillas in the middle were a bit soggy - next time I will not layer as in the recipe, but mix the chicken and soup/tomatoes, top with tortillas, then with cheese.
This is definitely not the classic King Ranch Chicken we eat here in Texas.
I'd never heard of this casserole but thought I would give it a shot. Very yummy but you need to add more crushed chips on top each time you have it for leftovers for extra oomph :o)
I mexicanized this recipe a bit. Instead of cheddar cheese, I used one brick of mild cheddar, one brick of hot pepper cheese, and a bag of kroger shredded pepper jack cheese. Also, instead of the tomatoes, I used 1/2 jar of mild salsa, and added a couple tablespoons of diced green chilies on top of that. With using the salsa, you do NOT need to use the chicken broth at all. Also, I used a 16 oz package of the corn tortilla's - gave it a great flavor. Family absolutely LOVED it and my son ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning.
I like a lot of cheese and so does my family. The recipe's amount would not do for us.
WHAT A GREAT RECIPE !!! MY WHOLE FAMILY LOVES IT...MAYBE NOT THE PRETTIEST LOOKING , BUT THE FLAVOR IS INCREDIBLE !! USE LOW SODIUM SOY SAUCE!!!!
This dish was wonderful! My husband asks me to make it all the time now. I'm not a very good cook but this was so easy!
YUM!!! There is nothing bland about this recipe at all.
This turned out easy and good, although I think adding a little onion in it would help. Thanks for the post.
