How to Make KING RANCH CHICKEN (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil chicken with salt and pepper for approximately 30 minutes until done completely.

    Remove chicken from pan and cut into bite size pieces
  2. Peel and quarter onion and place in food processor.

    Cut pepper quarters and remove core, membrane and seeds. Place in food processor with onions.

    Pulse 3-5 times until onion and bell pepper are coarsely chopped.
  3. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add green peppers and onions and cook for approximately 5 minutes until tender, stirring as needed to avoid burning.
  4. Add soups, ro-tel tomatoes, and 1 cup stock into saucepan with pepper and onions and stir with wooden spoon until blended and smooth. Remove from heat.
  5. In 9" x 13" baking dish, arrange alternate layers beginning with tortillas, then chicken, then soup mixture and cheese until all products are used up (ending with cheese topping).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

    You can turn heat up to 425º for the last ten minutes if you want cheese topping to be really crusty.
