King Ranch Chicken

Hello All! Welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I have been SO bad lately about posting. I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and really stuggling this go round. I'm having pains I never had before and it is all new. So forgive my hit and miss posting. It was so exciting to see we had 125 people participate last week in TMTT! WOW! I remember when there were only 20 of us. Pretty exciting. Lisa my best friend and sister is the best hostest around, so please be sure to follow the rules and mention TMTT and link back to her site where Mr. Linky lives.

On an unrelated note, our (mine and Lisa's) mom, Carolyn is having knee replacement surgery today, Tuesday, Jan. 19th. Please keep her in your prayers. We are praying a speedy recovery for her!

Now, for this week's recipe. I made this a few days ago as I was trying to put together casseroles that would "freeze nicely" for me and my Mom. I thought I would make a few dishes to have for my parents when she got home from the hospital that just needed to go into the oven from the freezer. While I was at it, I made enough for my family and now have a nicely stocked freezer. One of the dishes I made was King Ranch Chicken. I shall share it with you today!

4 boneless chicken breasts boiled and then chopped (I always throw some spices in to the water for a little flavor when I boil them)
1- 20 count package of corn tortillas - torn into stips
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can mild rotel tomatoes
1 medium onion chopped
3-4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Layer the tortillas at the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish
  • Combine the rotel tomatoes, chicken soup, mushroom soup and onions in a bowl
  • Pour half the soup mixture over the torillas
  • Layer the chicken on top of the soup mixture and half the cheese on top of that
  • Pour the remaining soup mixture over the cheese and then top with the remaining cheese.
  • Put in over and bake around 25 - 30 minutes until bubbling.

How Yummy does that sound! I like to have fresh chopped Cilantro and sour cream on the side for those who would like to add it to their serving. It is super yummy folks, and really not hard at all.

I love chicken recipes and I like the idea of Rotel tomatoes. Spicy is something the family like.

I love dishes with corn tortillas, and they are so much healthier than flour. Looks great!

I just found your blog and am loving it :) I have been making King Ranch Chicken for years (oldest daughter LOVES it) I recently replaced the boiled chicken with roasted. I roast it on the bone with the skin on, olive oil, salt & pepper. Remove skin and bones and it's YUMMY!
