Doritos Chicken Casserole

I saw this recipe shared on Facebook a while back and thought it looked so yummy! I re-vamped it a little, and made it for dinner one night last week. It was a big hit! Quick and easy to make, which is always good for busy week nights. Here's how I made it:

3 chicken breast cooked and shredded.
1 can cream of mushroom soup (Or you could use cream of chicken soup, too)
1 can Rotel (In this recipe, I used two, but it was too tomato-y for our liking, so next time I will only use 1 can)
1 bag Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 8oz. bag Mexican style shredded cheese
Cooking Spray

To start, you need to get your chicken ready.  If you have chicken breasts at home, you could always cook them in a crock pot and shred them up. I didn't plan that far ahead, so I bought a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. I love using rotisserie chicken because its already cooked and it saves me some time! I pulled off the chicken legs and wings and set them aside. Lee and I ate these later this week. Next, I pulled all the other meat off the bone and shredded it up. I figured that would equal to about 3 chicken breasts like the recipe called for.

Next, I mixed up the Chicken, cream of mushroom soup, and Rotel. If you just use one can of Rotel, your mixture won't look as tomato-y as the pic below. For Lee and I, 2 cans was too much tomato. So next time, I'm planning to just use one can. 

Next, take 1/3 of your Doritos out of the bag and set them aside. Keep the other 2/3 in the bag, and crush them up. They don't have to be broken into teeny tiny pieces, but about bite size is good. 

Spray your 13x9 pan, and cover the bottom with your crushed Doritos. Then spread our your chicken mixture on top. 

Next, layer the 1/3 of unbroken doritos on top. 

Cover with cheese and bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and chicken is warm. I cooked mine for about 25 minutes. 

Once your cheese is melted, dinner is served!
