Original King Ranch Chicken
I've been making this for years - it's a family favorite."My husbands says this is one of the best dishes I've ever made. I don't care much for corn tortillas, so I used flour and I put a generous amt of cheese on top. Super easy, and very tasty!" - crn003

Original King Ranch Chicken Preparation
Boil chicken, remove meat from skin and bones.
Sometimes I will use 6-8 chicken breasts instead of whole chicken when I'm in a hurry.
Saute onions and green pepper.
Mix with soups, tomatoes, cubed chicken, and chicken broth.
Line bottom of Pyrex casserole with six tortillas.
Add 1/2 of chicken/soup mixture; spread over tortillas. Sprinkle grated cheese over mixture.
Then make another layer of six tortillas, chicken/soup mixture, and cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 250-300 F 1 hour until cheese is bubbly.
Please note that you can make this recipe much lower in fat by using the fat free soups and fat free chicken broth. It turns out just as tasty.
I've also substituted Cheddar Cheese, as well as Lite Velveeta in place of the Monterey Jack cheese and it was all good.
A family favorite. I make this frequently.
