Granma's King Ranch Chicken

This is my Granma's recipe, and probably one of my favorites out of all of hers. I prefer it better than those who layer everything. It's always been a huge hit at my house with everyone I've cooked it for.

*You may use onion powder instead of onion, if you choose to.

Ingredients

1
whole chicken, deboned
1 pkg
tortilla chips
3/4 c
fried onion
1 can(s)
rotel with chilies
1 can(s)
corn, drained
1 can(s)
cream of chicken
1 can(s)
cream of mushroom
1 c
milk
1 Tbsp
chili powder
1 Tbsp
cumin
1 lb
grated cheese
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil chicken until done. (Alternatively, if you choose to use packaged chicken breast/thighs, I cut them up and add a few spices and fry them in a skillet!). Once boiled, debone and set chicken aside.
2
Fry onions, and drain oil and grease. Add chicken to the pan with onions and fry for a minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients except cheese. Stir and blend well.
3
Add 3/4th of your cheese and mix into the rest of the mixture. It should be very thick at this point.
4
Crush tortilla chips and line a 9x13 pan with them. Pour mixture over the chips and top with more crushed tortilla chips. Top with cheese.
5
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
