Something New: Rotel Chicken

Although I again attempted a new recipe, this week I slacked a little. The following Rotel Chicken recipe is VERY simple. I didn't do anything that was even considered adventurous for me, I wasn't nervous or worried about it turning out, because it's a simple chicken casserole recipe (hard to go wrong with that). But it was still new to me (so it still counts).

So here it is: Rotel Chicken Recipe

4 chicken breasts
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 lb worth of Velveeta Cheese
1 can Rotel tomatoes
Tortilla Chips


Boil chicken, cut into small pieces. Combine Cream of Mushroom Soup, Rotel tomatoes, and chicken bits. In a casserole dish, layer tortilla chips, chicken mixture, and velveeta cheese. repeat. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Another success. I served my youngest sis and hubby with this dish and a side of salad. All parties involved cleaned their plate and went for seconds. Yummy.

If you have any recipe suggestions, feel free to send them my way. If it tickles my fancy, I'll give it a try!

I use cream of chicken instead of mushroom. Not sure how much real difference that is. My sister in law used paresean cheese and bacon mixed in. Everything is better with bacon!

Here's a good change-up if you like the flavor of that...

Rotel Chicken Spaghetti
-boil the chicken and cut into small pieces
-while the chicken is boiling (or after - whatever floats your boat), get some velveeta melting and get the rotel and cream of mushroom mixed in
-while that's going, get some noodles boiling in another pot (spaghetti, penne, whatever you have around)
-when the noodles are done and drained, throw in the chicken and the rotel mixture and mix it up. The stirring is a pretty good workout but IT'S OH SOOOO GOOD!!!
