This dish will always have a fond place in my heart. It hails from my humble beginnings in the kitchen. And is still to this day, one of the recipes my family requests the most.
I went ahead and added the ampersand (&) to the title.
You see, we have just always called it Chicken Tortilla Casserole.
No proper punctuation.
Just a big 'ole run-on title.
I mean, who am I trying to impress?
My family would eat it even if I called it "Glop", right?
But as I started to write this post, I thought, will this confuse anyone? Surely you all will know that there aren't tortillas that are actually made from chicken, right?
But just in case...the "AND" sign it is!
Chicken AND Tortilla Casserole.
As simple as this dish is, it REALLY is to die for! A wonderful, creamy, cheesy, chickeny, dish of goodness. Comfort food at it's best!
I like to make mine by simmering a whole chicken in my stock pot for about an hour; that way I get all the tender meat along with the broth. (You'll need both for this dish.)
But if you're in a pinch, or just want to cut a few corners, a rotisserie chicken and a can of chicken broth will do the trick.
