Fiesta Chicken Casserole

Today's recipe is another winner from Plain Chicken.

It is a great weeknight meal as it was quick and easy to put together and very tasty.  I used my favorite canned chicken from Costco which made this simple dish even easier!  You could also use rotisserie chicken.

This also makes great leftovers for lunch the next day!

Fiesta Chicken Casserole
via plain chicken

3 cup cooked chopped chicken
1 cup instant rice (uncooked)
1 can cream of chicken soup (I used 98% fat free)
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles, undrained
1 Tbsp Southwestern or Taco seasoning
2 Tbsp milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips or Doritos (I used Doritos)

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine chicken, rice, soup, Rotel, seasoning, milk and 1 1/2 cups of cheese.  Pour into a lightly greased 9x9 pan.  Cover and bake for 30 minutes.  Top casserole with crushed chips and remaining cheese, bake uncovered for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted.


  1. Sounds so the simplicity of your recipes

  2. This looks really yummy! I will have to put it on my list of dinners to try. BTW... I'm forwarding this award on to you: =)
