“My mom made this when I was growing up. *Cook time does not include boiling chicken. Can also use a store bought rotisserie chicken cut into bite-size pieces.*”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil chicken, cool and shred into bite-size pieces.
  2. Place chicken, soup, sour cream, green chilies and olives (optional) in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Cut tortillas in ½ or ¼ (your preference) and layer on the bottom of a greased (spray with cooking spray) casserole dish so entire bottom is covered.
  4. Spoon 1/3 mixture on top of tortillas
  5. Top with 2-3 oz shredded cheese (enough to cover chicken mixture).
  6. Repeat tortilla, chicken filling and cheese layers two times
