    I mad this dish today and I must say it was a winner!!! I think I might try Doritos instead of the corn tortilla next time just out of curiosity.

    LABOR intensive ; but oh so good. Made it today, 01 30 2016, took me approx. 2 hours to "prep" out. Made a lot more than I anticipated it would. Great for special occassions, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, etc. Will make again for Easter. <3 Very rich,; the next time I make it, I will use only half amount of the butter, way rich ingrediants (sorry, can't spell),; but, you get the point. Love my chicken <3

    We love this recipe. I must admit I gave up layering and just mix it all together. Works fine for us!

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I only change the tortillas. I use crumbled Nacho Doritos instead. It's so good!

    Made this tonight for the first time and it was a huge hit! The only change I made was using flour tortillas since I don't like the texture of corn tortillas. Anytime I make a new recipe I ask everyone what they would change if I made it again and they all said "NOTHING". Thank you! This one is a keeper!!!
