This dish was so easy to put together and bake. I had the chicken already cooked in the freezer. We love green chiles, so I added 2 cans, drained. The dish tasted similar to King Ranch Casserole, and we love that dish too. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy recipe. I am sure I will be making it again.

This was delicious. The only change I made was used boneless chicken breasts as I do not like dark meat. The chicken was tasty and filling. I do not normally like chilies but they added just the perfect touch to this recipe. Thank you.
