King Ranch Chicken

{I know this is for sure the worst picture ever, but it will do}

Who knew this recipe was so loved by many.  I had heard of this a few times and then have come across it in some cook books.  So after all the talk about it, I decided it was time to try it and see what it was all about.  Now personally, the name doesn't sounds too intriguing.  But, don't let it fool ya.  It is worth adding to the cooking list.

King Ranch Chicken
4 chicken breasts ~ cook and shredded
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
1 can {10 oz} petite diced tomatoes with green chilis
1 can {15.25 oz} whole kernel corn ~ drained
1- 1 1/2 cup crushed Cheese Doritos
2 cups shredded cheese

In a large bowl, mix together the chicken, soups, tomatoes and corn.  Pour mixture into a well greased 9x13 baking dish and top with cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees uncovered, for 20 minutes.

At the 20 minute ding, take the casserole out of the oven and top with crushed Doritos.  Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until the chips are toasted.  Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
