January 2013:  King Ranch Chicken

King Ranch Chicken

1 cooked chicken or 5 chicken breasts, deboned
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
12-15 corn tortillas
sauce -- 1/2 cup chicken broth
              1 can cream of mushroom soup
              1 can cream of chicken soup
              1 can Rotel tomatoes

Mix onion and cheese but leave out enough cheese to top casserole (about 1/2 cup)

Cover the bottom of the casserole dish with a very thin layer of the sauce (to keep food from sticking to the bottom).

Layer in a 9 x 14 casserole dish:

1.  chicken
2.  tortillas (torn up in medium-sized pieces)
3.  sauce
4.  cheese and onion mixture
5.  repeat above layers, ending with cheese

Bake at 350 degress for 45 minutes to one hour.

(Note: Can be put together the day before, left in the refrigerator over night, and baked the next day.)

Great on a cold winter's day!
