Category: Dinner Entrees Sub Category: Chicken & Turkey Entrees

what you need
  • 4 - 5 large chicken breasts
  • Celery and onions, roughly chopped - to season water (optional)
  • 1 large (but NOT super sized) bag Doritos
  • 1 family size can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/3 can milk
  • 8 oz. Kraft Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • Scallions or chives to garnish (optional)
make it
1. Boil chicken breasts in pot of water until cooked. Add some celery and onions for flavor if desired. This should take about 30-35 minutes depending on the size of the breasts. Remove chicken from water and allow to cool until you can handle it. You may want to cover it with plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for a few minutes.

2. Meanwhile, evenly pour the entire bag of Doritos into an ungreased 9x13 baking pan. Once you can handle the chicken, remove it from the bones, almost "shredding" it by hand into thin pieces. Discard the skin and bones, and place the shredded chicken into a large bowl. Add the entire can of soup plus 1/3 can of milk to the chicken and gently stir until combined. Pour the chicken and soup mixture on top of the Doritos using the back of a spoon to spread it. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and garnish with the scallions or chives if you like.

3. Bake for about 25 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven. You want it heated through just until bubbly, but you don't want the chips to burn. Allow to cool 5 min, then cut into squares and serve as you would a lasagna. Enjoy!
This recipe sounds really bizarre, but it is so good it's addictive! Many times I have even regretted making it because everybody always requests it. I have made it many times and no one ever gets tired of it.

My family prefers using the original Nacho Cheese flavor Doritos, but if you have Ranch lovers, you can use that and it works just as well. It also goes over really well with kids, and reheats nicely in the microwave. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks! :o)

*Note* - I noticed they sell the already cooked, shredded chicken breasts in the stores now. I haven't tried it in this recipe, but if you are crunched for time I'm sure it would work out just fine. Let me know if you try it.
