This is without a doubt my husbands all time favorite dish. I got this recipe from his sister, and made just a few tiny adjustments to it. It is a very mild Mexican dish, and pretty much fail proof. I don’t make it often enough though, specially if you ask my hubby. He would like to have it at least once a week. Problem is, he eats one pan full on his own, most often in one sitting, and that is just not good for him, other people in the house or the budget! :o)
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 lbs chicken breast, chopped to bite pieces
5 cups of mexican blend cheese
1 can of cream of celery
1 can of cream of chicken
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup canned and chopped green chillies (drained)
small corn tortillas
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Brown chicken in a pan on 2 tbsp of oil. Season with salt and pepper.
In a bowl combine cream of celery, cream of chicken, sour cream and green chillies.
Prepare the dish you will assemble the lasagna in. Put 1/2 cup of cream mix on the bottom of the baking dish and spread. Layer a row of tortillas followed with cream mix, chicken and cheese. You should be able to make 3 layers like this. Last layer doesn’t need chicken, just a ton of cheese. :o)That is the best part!
Count on getting at least seconds, it really is that good!
Quick update…and thanks to J + P for reminding me!
It seems that I forgot to put instructions down for actually baking this amazing dish. Yaaay me!
I preheat the oven to 425 degrees and let it bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted and golden brown on top…
Thank you Andrea!
