This week's reader recipe comes from TeamSugar member LaylaCams. The recipe was actually submitted by LisaK and is a twist on a regular chicken casserole. The twist? A layer of crushed Doritos. That's right, Doritos. I really don't think I need to say much more! To get the recipe, read more.
Doritos Chicken Casserole
Submitted by TeamSugar member LaylaCams
I made LisaK's Chicken Casserole for dinner tonight.
1 whole chicken (lv) or 1 package of boneless skinless breasts or chicken tenders (sv) I usually buy a 3 pack of breasts.
1 can of Rotel
1 or 2 cans of Cream of Chicken Mushroom soup (I used 2, hers called for 1)
1 small onion
1 bell pepper
1 32-oz. carton of Swanson Natural Goodness 33 percent lower sodium chicken broth (only needed for the sv) or 3-4 cups of chicken broth from where you boiled the whole chicken (lv)
1 bag of Doritos — the corn flavor in the yellow bag
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (or more depending on how cheesy you want it)
Boil your chicken until done. If your using a whole chicken, season water with celery, carrots, salt, etc to make a broth.
Set chicken aside and let cool. Chop up bell pepper and onion and saute in a pan for about 5 minutes.
Tear up chicken and cover the Doritos. Pour sauce over mixture, cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and cover with grated cheese. Bake for 10 more minutes.
If you are using the can broth, always use the lower sodium otherwise it is too salty.
The soup and chicken broth mixture is going to be VERY thin. Don't fret, once you bake it, it will thicken up and the Doritos will absorb some of it
