The King of all Casseroles

Picture of The King of all Casseroles
The King Ranch Chicken casserole is a fairly easy and inexpensive casserole to make with minimal preparation time. It requires a limited cooking knowledge to prepare. It is a very filling casserole, a 9 x 13 pan will feed about 8 adults. This is a Mexican type of food and is similar to enchiladas. The main ingredients are tortillas, chicken, peppers, onions, and cheese. If you like Mexican food and enchiladas you will love this casserole! This is also an excellent casserole for someone that is single or has a small family that wouldn't be able to eat a whole 9 x 13 casserole, because it is very good reheated unlike many other foods.

Picture of Ingredients
Listed below are the ingredients needed to make King Ranch Chicken casserole. The photo below also shows what each ingredient looks like and labels each one.

1 Medium Pepper
1 Medium Onion
2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
2 cans of Rotel
3 Boneless Chicken Breast
9 8" Tortillas
12 oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
8 oz. Mozzerella Cheese

Step 2: Cube and Cook Chicken

To begin you will need to cube the chicken using an appropriate meat knife. The best way to cube it would be to cut the chicken breasts into about 5 lengthwise strips and then cut the strips into cubes. The cubes should be no bigger than the ones shown in the photos below. The smaller they are the more evenly they can be distributed throughout the casserole. Once it is cubed you will then cook it in a medium size frying pan on medium-high heat until the chicken is white all of the way through. You will need to stir it around once in awhile while you are cooking it to ensure that it all gets cooked evenly and thoroughly. Feel free to season it with your favorite chicken seasoning for added flavor.

I made this and it turned out very good. It takes some preparation time, but it was worth it. My grandson loved it and so did everyone else. If you are calorie conscious you can use light soup and cheese. It helps some anyway :o)

Pardon my ignorance, but what is Rotel? Is it a brand name sauce?

Yea it is just the brand of a mix of tomatoes and peppers. If you look at the photo in step 1 you can kind of see what the can looks like. Hope this helps!
