Usually, I try to not share any dinner recipes during the summer that require the oven. Nobody wants a hot house from cooking dinner in the oven. However, I had to share this recipe now for king ranch chicken without soup from a can in it.
This recipe ready to be posted on the blog for 2 months now, but just haven’t gotten around to sharing it. With all I had going on in my life with work, family, and my dad sick with cancer – I wasn’t quite as organized as I normally was. So this recipe kind of got lost, but I am so excited to share it now even if it bakes in the oven.
I love king ranch chicken. It’s like a nice creamy chicken enchilada casserole that is full of flavor. It also uses a can of cream of chicken soup. This recipe does not! You make your own creamy base with using butter, onion, spices, flour, and chicken broth. Then it also gets some green chilies, Rotel, and sour cream mixed in for more flavor and creaminess.
My family LOVED this king ranch chicken made without soup and it will be a regular that I make for sure. It is so full of flavor and I love the creamy base is prepared from scratch.
