Chicken breast halves are topped with spiced tomato and condensed soup sauce to make this yummy casserole. Crumbled taco chips or Doritos and some shredded cheese make up the crust and topping. 

Serve this flavorful chicken casserole with easy Mexican rice and refried beans for a satisfying and well-rounded family meal.

If you don't care to use processed condensed soups, omit the soups and the 1/2 cup of chicken broth and make the sauce with 3 cups of seasoned medium white sauce. Add chicken flavor to the sauce with the chicken base or add half the chicken stock in the sauce.
