Recipe Time! I have a recipe for you that is very easy. You can make it more difficult if you really want to, by cooking the chicken and not using the already cooked kind, but I did it the easy way tonight. This is really, really good stuff. The 4 year old calls it "Orange Food". I call it "Chicken Dorito Casserole".
1 big, oval, disposable, tin foil type, turkey roasting pan (if you don't want to wash a huge casserole dish)
2 - (10 oz) cans of chicken breast, shredded (or a pound of chicken breast meat, boiled till tender and shredded up)
1 can of cream of mushroon soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of original Rotel tomatoes
1/2 a can of milk
2 regular size bags (13 oz) of nacho cheese Doritos
2 - 2 cup bags of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Prep work: Crush the Doritos to smithereens. You can crush them in their bags, just make an airhole at the top of the bag before crunching them up so you don't pop the bags and cause a nacho cheese explosion in your kitchen. Now... I only use about a bag and a half of the chips, so you might want to reserve half of one of the bags of doritos before you start crushing them. Open the 2 cans of soup and the can of Rotel tomatos. Put all the soups and the rotel into a big bowl and add 1/2 a soup can of milk. Stir that up. Grease your pan.
Spread about half the first bag of dorito smithereens into the bottom of your pan. Sprinkle the shredded chicken from one of the 2 cans over the crunched up chips. Pour about half your soup mixture over the chips and chicken. Sprinkle one bag of shredded cheddar evenly over the soup. Add the other half of the first bag of chip crumbles, layer the 2nd can of chicken, pour on the rest of the soup and then add about half of the 2nd bag of chips... which should be the rest of the chips you've crushed. Sprinkle the 2nd bag of shredded cheddar on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Serve with sour cream and chopped avocados. Good stuff.
You can't hardly go wrong. You just basically layer the chips, chicken, soup, and cheese.
One last step: Send willing sister out into the stormy night to retrieve a dessert pie from the local ice cream place. Make coffee, finish blowing diet.
