Mexican Chicken Chili Lasagna

My mother makes this dish for me and guests at least once a year. It is super delish and leftovers are even better. I guarantee you will like it also and it is very easy to make. Give it a try and let me know what you think. 

1st layer of tortillas

Then add 1/2 chicken soup mixture
Then add 1/2 the cheese before you start the next layer


4 Chicken Breasts with bone
2 cups water
1 cup chicken broth 
4 oz diced green chilies
1 pound cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tablespoons grated onion
1 package corn tortillas cut into 4 triangles


Place chicken in skillet with 2 cups of water or enough that it just covers chicken and simmer for about 25 minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Once it has cooled Shred the chicken 

My mother reserves the broth and adds 2 chicken bouillon cubes. From that she uses one cup of it for the chicken, cheese and soup mixture. You can use 1 cup of chicken broth also.

In a medium bowl combine 1 cup chicken broth, milk, soup, onion, chilies, mix together well. Then add shredded chicken. You can use this mixture now or let sit in the fridge for a few hours ahead of time.

Butter a 9x13 pan and then lay down 6 tortilla pieces that have been cut into triangles. Then layer half the the chicken mixture. On top of that layer half the shredded cheese. Then add another layer of 6 tortillas, then chicken mixture and top with the remainder of cheese.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. let sit for at least 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
