Mexican Chicken

Mexican Chicken

Mexican Chicken is a Family Favorite, and we RARELY have leftovers!


1 Bag Doritos
3 Cooked Chicken Breasts, shredded – I cook mine in my slowcooker all day so it’s ready at meal time
2 Cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Can Rotel
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
2 Cups Shredded Cheese (Colby tastes best, but if I can get a Cheddar/Colby Mix or even just Cheddar on sale, I use that!)

Spray 9×13 pan with Non-Stick Cooking Spray (I use Pam)
Pour a layer of Doritos on the bottom – use your discretion how much your family likes – mine wants the whole bag, LOL

Place the shredded chicken on top
C360_2012-08-28-18-31-59
Mix the Soups, Rotel, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, and Chicken Broth (I use what’s in the slow cooker)
C360_2012-08-28-18-20-45
Pour the soups over the chicken & chips
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes
Take it out, layer the shredded cheese on top, and return to the oven for 5 minutes

Serve it up and Enjoy!

I have also heard this referred to as Doritos Chicken or Rotel Chicken. My mom started making this for us when I was very young. I have always picked out the onions (YUCK) and when I was old enough to make it, I just started leaving them out :) If you like onions, just chop one up, saute it until it’s clear, and add to the mixture.

    Weeknight Roast Chicken – a recipe I found in Cooks Illustrated:
    http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/detail.asp?docid=31237

    It’s simple, it’s easy, and – best of all – it’s FAST.

    My fave recipe calls for turkey breast but I guess you could also use chicken breast. Basically it’s just a wrap but it’s a favorite around here. I cut the meat in
    strips, season, bread and pan-fry them. Warm up tortilla shells and place shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and whatever veggies I prefer. Add your favorite dressing like ranch, ceaser or honey mustard. Top with a strip of meat, wrap it up and you have an all-in-one meal.

    My favorite chicken recipe is chicken parmesan.
    4 Chicken Breasts
    4 Egg Whites
    2 cups Italian bread crumbs
    1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
    2 cups Marinara Sauce

    Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in small bowl. Beat egg whites in another bowl. Dip chicken in egg whites then coat with bread crumbs. Lay chicken in a roasting pan and top with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Bake for about 35 minutes.

    This looks loosely based on chilaquiles which is a tomato based sauce, chicken, and tortilla chips. It looks yummy but, is LOADED with sodium. I wish I didn’t have to watch my salt intake.

    Always on the look out for new recipes to make with chicken. This sounds like a good one that we all will like. Looks like a fairly easy recipe to make. I will have to make this for a dinner when I invite others over for supper.

    I am NOT a HUGE fan of Mexican. My husband is, but I believe this recipe would be a BIG hit for both of us.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
