We Only used one Onion, and instead of the Tomato and Basil Sauce we used the four cheese. The Wife and Kiddo Loved it and want me to make it again. Now if I could only find a low fat version for myself, lol.
I really do love the idea of chicken tortilla lasagna, but I thought this was one of those recipes that is better without all of the extra ingredients. I also thought there were some ingredients that didn't stay true to the authentic Mexican taste I was looking for. Without the moz cheese, tomato sauce, and basil I would have given this recipe 5 stars. Also I changed the peppers to green peppers, cooked the chicken in olive oil onion and garlic powder, added Monterrey jack cheese, made the salsa chunky so I didn't need as many onions as called for and used flour tortillas instead of corn just because I like the smoothness of flour tortillas.
Delicious dish. Only needed 1 onion.
Started with uncooked chicken breasts, sliced. Sauteed them in oil and butter with onions, green pepper, jalapenos for about 20 minutes. Cut up chicken smaller while cooking with spatula.
I only used Pace Medium Picante salsa, no tomato sauces.
Transfer into casserole, making layers with tortillas and cheese as recipe states. Bake about 1/2 hour.
Definitely a family favorite now. Great as leftovers the next day too.
Used 1 large onion, 4 cloves of garlic, fresh basil and oregano, didnt have jalepenos, but used an array of hot peppers that I had in the fridge, didnt have fresh salsa, so I made my own using tomatoes and red,orange, and yellow peppers. Added red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper.
This was fantastic, my parents LOVED it. I used up the rest of my tortillas using this and my parents suggested and I agreed that the chicken sauce mix can totally be made by itself and made with pasta, potatoes, any kind of side dish. Its delicious.
I too added more chicken didn't cook it in butter, 1 onion, added tomatos and chilis vs jalapeno's. spagetti sauce with roasted red pepper (Neuman's) no tomato sauce or salsa. I used what shredded Sargento cheese I had in the fridge which consisted of colby-jack, taco, and pepper jack. Not sure I had 32 oz all together but it was more than plenty amount of cheese. I too used flour tortilla's because that's what I had. Awesome taste, perhaps I could have added mexicorn if I wanted the corn taste in the dish and may try that next time. Family loved it!!
I made this (almost) exactly as stated and it turned out really delicious. The only thing I changed was to replace half of the mozzarella with cheddar since I only had 8 oz of mozzarella.
My only complaint is that some of the ratios seemed off. Next time, I will use more chicken, less sauce, and less cheese. But the taste was fantastic. I highly recommend using the corn tortillas because they had a great flavor and texture after cooking for an hour.
