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.

How to Make Granma's King Ranch Chicken

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.
