King Ranch Chicken Casserole

King Ranch Chicken Casserole – My Favorite

This King Ranch Chicken Casserole is a church potluck staple almost everywhere. There are many, many versions of this dish. This is my favorite

This particular recipe, however, is the best King Ranch Chicken recipe that I’ve found! I’m so glad it freezes well so I can make a big one have it for a long time!

I don’t know where the original recipe came from but I’ve had it for years now and enjoy it on a regular basis.

It does have all the evil ingredients like cream soup and fake cheese but it’s still wonderful!

For a person learning to cook this recipe is perfect, it is so simple and just so delicious!

  • 6 -8 chicken breasts
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 10 1/2 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 10 1/2 ounce can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • 1 8 ounce jar Cheez Whiz
  • 1 11 ounce bag cheesy plain Doritos or 1 (11 ounce) bag other corn chips, crushed
  • 8 ounces grated cheddar
  • 4 ounces grated mozzarella cheese
  • paprika to garnish
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Steam or boil the chicken breasts until cooked through (I use my steamer and find it makes the chicken perfectly moist and tender). When cool, dice into bite-size pieces.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix the soups, onion, Ro-tel tomatoes and Cheez Whiz until blended.
  4. Layer the bottom of a greased 9x12 casserole dish with crushed chips. Next, layer half the chicken pieces. Top with half the sauce. Sprinkle with half the cheddar cheese.
  5. Repeat the layers, but top with the Cheddar and Mozzarella.
  6. Sprinkle paprika over the top to garnish.
  7. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
