Cheese Chicken Ole
by Cathy Carmichael
(make one day ahead)
  • 6-8 split chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • Chicken drippings
  • 1 large can chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 pint sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 lb. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 package corn tortillas
Bake chicken, covered and foiled in 350-degree oven for one hour. Reserve drippings. When breasts have cooled, remove skin and bones, leaving meat in fairly large pieces. In a large bowl, combine sour cream, soups, milk, onion and drippings. Cut tortillas in one-inch strips. Place a little soup in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan. Layer half of tortillas, chilies and cheese. Repeat layers. Pour soup over all and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Yields six to eight servings.
