The cookbook is the publication of the Junior Charity League of Monroe, Louisiana. This is great for OAMC--you can even OAMC it in stages...broth, chicken, vegetables. In my family it is the go-to funeral covered dish, the dish we bring when a relative of a family friend dies. I alter it a bit from the recipe, and to me (even though it may not be the "authentic" or "original" King Ranch Chicken) it is the ONLY King Ranch Chicken! There are some on here that are close to the recipe, but there always seems to be a difference in the layering/mixing of ingredients. The cookbook lists it as "A Mexican party must!" Below is the text of the recipe (with my few variations in parentheses or in notes). Preparation time includes the making of the stock, etc.
