Chicken Ole

Chicken Ole Crock pot or 40 min in a 350 degree oven

This is a dish that my sister-in-law and her mom made for us soon after my daugter was born. It was so yummy! I had to have the recipe.  This is one of my favorite crock pot recipes for chicken but I often make it in the oven because I don't plan well enough in advance.  So I turned it into one of my favorite quick chicken breast recipes.

-one cooked whole body chicken, in bite size pieces. Cook a whole body chicken on the stove with an onion by bringing cold water to a boil and then simmering it on the stove for 1 1/2 hour-2 hours. (I have boiled 2-3 breasts and then shredded them. Much faster and easier. I have also had baked chicken on the first night. Then the next boiling the remaining chicken and taking all the meat off.)

-12 corn tortillas, torn up in bite size pieces (I have used flour when I didn't have corn- works very well also)

-mix together a part of a small can of mild green chilie salsa (to taste), 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, one small container of sour cream (I think it's 6 oz) I use light.  I often substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream and it comes out just as great.

layer the chicken, cream mixture, and tortillas. I do about 6 or 9 layers

cook on low for about 4 hours
