I came across this in Taste of Home's Quick Cooking. Was unsure about it, but took a chance and love it. The corn chips gives it a crunch and the lettuce and tomatoe add a cool crispiness that add to the warm creaminess of the rice and chicken. It is extreamly wonderful. I've served it at a Bible Study and everyone loved it.

Frankly, this scared me at first. I did everything except for add black olives (personal preference). It looked soupy and not the least bit colorful as I was putting it into the baking dish. I cringed as I put it in the oven. When it was done, I added the tomatoes, lettuce, and corn chips. Turns out, it was FABULOUS!!!! My husband and I went back for seconds (and thirds, but who's counting)! Very tasty! I'm glad I stuck it through. It is definitely a keeper at my house!
This is my favorite recipe EVER!!! All of our friends love it to. Since our family doesn't like olives we leave them out and i like to add green onions. Frito scoops are the best with it. I really think everyone should try it.
I agree with starsugarb...this made me very nervous but I was intrigued so I had to try it. Am I ever glad I did! The whole family ate plenty ate dinner, and I finished the pan myself for lunch. Not hard to make, just a little time consuming. But worth it!
