5 King Ranch Casserole

I thought I would give you a nice unhealthy (but, oh so good) recipe before the start of the New Year and all of the New Year's resolutions! (I have LOVED hearing all of your resolutions and am having a much easier time coming up with mine. . . since I am copying so many of YOURS!) I  was looking at my post about the Fresh Apple Cake, (another sinfully amazing item to partake in before the New Year . . . but it has apples in it, so it must be kind of healthy. . . right?) since I made it for my dad's office party, and realized I never posted this great King Ranch Casserole recipe! :-) Nate is a "King Ranch Casserole" snob and he put his stamp of approval on it! :-) 
Don't forget about the great CSN giveaway ending on New Year's Eve! :-)
How are you spending your day? I am putting away Christmas and getting ready for the Texas Bowl! Sic 'Em! 
Total: 4 hours, 10 minutes
Yield: Makes 6 servings
  • 4  cups  chopped cooked chicken

2. Cover and cook on LOW 3 1/2 hours or until bubbly and edges are golden brown. Uncover and cook on LOW 30 minutes.
Pin It!


  1. Sounds yummy!! I'm going to share it on my facebook fanpage, Pirates-n-Princesses. You should come check it out!!!
    So sorry about the end result of the Texas Bowl... We're Illini fans here. :)

  2. I'm going to give this a shot this week. I have a 3.5 qt slow cooker - should I halve the recipe or will it fit as is?

  3. I have a 7 qt slow cooker and I want to say it fit in the lower half of the slow cooker. I have a friend making it in the oven this week if you want to wait and see how it went for her! :-) OR you could do half in the slow cooker and half in the oven! :-)

  4. Ok! One of my friends who doesn't have a slow cooker cooked this at 350 in the oven until it was bubbly and she said it turned out perfectly! :-)
