Taco Chicken

Taco Chicken

After my husband and I got married I told him one day that I was going to make Taco Chicken and he of course asked “What the heck is Taco Chicken?”. I told him it was this yummy chicken casserole that had Doritos in it and he thought I was nuts. That was 19 years ago and after many, many dishes of  Taco Chicken it remains a family favorite. If you can find Taco flavored Doritos at your local supermarket then grab those, but if not the recipe is fine with regular Nacho Cheese Doritos.


1 Fryer Chicken Cooked and Shredded
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
6 oz. Chicken Broth ( You can use the broth from boiling your chicken)
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
1 small Onion chopped
1 teaspoon Oregano
Doritos (Taco or Nacho Cheese flavor)
2 cups Mexican Cheese blend shredded

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    When I saw this posted on Hunk of Meat Monday, I yelled for my husband to come in and read it with me. Taco Chicken is a family joke with which everyone (except me) take particular joy in talking about. The first year we were married, I was at the dentist’s office reading a magazine when I saw a recipe for Taco Chicken. I don’t know if the recipe was misprinted or if the dentist called me and I only got 2 ingredients written down then forgot but I made taco chicken by coating it in taco seasoning and baking it in the oven. Even the dogs wouldn’t eat it. This recipe sounds wonderful. I have some Doritos so I may make this tonight!

    Oh, my…I just have to follow a fellow Nacho Cheese Doritos lover, and I must make this. This will surely send me into nacho rehab! Patsy
