I was given this Dorito chicken casserole recipe by a co-worker. My husband says: “You had me at Doritos!”


This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Diane Blake. She was kind enough to share her favorite recipe with me. I’ve never made a Doritos Cheesy Chicken Casserole, so we gave it a try. This is one of those dishes that isn’t pretty, but it tastes really good. We both really enjoyed this. I used some rotisserie chicken meat and this came together in no time. We both especially loved the Doritos! Chicken Legs topped his plate with extra Doritos because you can never have too many Doritos.
