    Kim D.'s Note:

    I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar in September 2006. It was originally submitted by Moxie, but she is no longer a member of Recipezaar. I've been making Moxie's recipe for several years now and I'm proud to give it a home. The only change I make is that I use two cans of cream of chicken soup and omit the can of cream of mushroom soup, because my kids dislike mushrooms. This casserole is a church potluck staple here in Texas and there are as many versions of this dish as there are armadillos in Texas. However, this is the best King Ranch Chicken recipe that I've found! This casserole also freezes well.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Steam or boil the chicken breasts until cooked through (I use my steamer and find it makes the chicken perfectly moist and tender).
    2. 2
      When cool, dice into bite-size pieces.
    3. 3
      In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix the soups, onion, Ro-tel tomatoes and Cheez Whiz until blended.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
    5. 5
      Layer the bottom of a greased 9x12 casserole dish with crushed chips.
    6. 6
      Next, layer half the chicken pieces.
    7. 7
      Top with half the sauce.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with half the cheddar cheese.
    9. 9
      Repeat the layers, but top with the Cheddar and Mozzarella.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle paprika over the top to garnish.
    11. 11
      Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

      Hi, I made this tonight for dinner... What great comfort food!!! Yum! I cut the recipe in half and still have enough for lunch tomorrow. I used crushed tostidos on the bottom of the pan. I love that it is easy, yet good. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I have been looking for a good recipe for this!
