It’s astonishing to me that I’ve been posting recipes on this site for more than 7 years now!  Many of you have been around that entire time, some are just stopping by.  Regardless, that is a long time to be posting recipes each day.  That also means some of the old ones I posted sometimes I tend to forget about like this King Ranch Chicken.

I made King Ranch Chicken many years ago, but then when I went gluten-free it was stored away in the back of my mind because the cream soup was not gluten-free.  Thankfully, I’ve found that not only can I make my own now, but they also have gluten-free cream soups at the store now too, even Walmart.  It really is amazing to see how far gluten-free has come.  There are so many products now that are gluten-free and make it almost easy to maintain that way of eating.

I decided to remake that delicious King Ranch Chicken, but this time I used a Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup instead.  It was a simple swap and this was just so delicious, the entire family loved it.  It made for a great comfort meal on a busy day.

King Ranch Chicken


  • 2 Cups Chicken, Cooked and Shredded
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Pepper
  • 1 Cup Skim Milk
  • 1 Can Low Fat Cream of Chicken Soup or Gluten-Free Version
  • 1 Can Low Fat Cream of Mushroom Soup or Gluten-Free Version
  • 1 14.5oz Can Rotel Tomatoes, Drained
  • 2 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Cups Crushed Doritos


  1. Preheat the oven to 350*.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the onion, pepper, milk, soups, and tomatoes.
  3. Next, spray a 9 x 13 dish with non stick cooking spray then place a cup of Doritos on the bottom.
  4. On top of the Doritos, place about a cup of chicken.
  5. Add a layer of the soup mixture, half the mixture.
  6. Top with a cup of shredded cheese.
  7. Repeat the Doritos, chicken, and soup mixture.
  8. Top with remaining cheese.
  9. Bake for 40 Minutes and Serve.


Of course, let’s be honest, I think my kids loved the Doritos more than the actual meat and bulk of the recipe, but they ate it!  I’ll just say that was a mommy win for me especially after a long day.  It’s amazing how just going to and from schools twice a day can completely wear you out, right?  Granted it’s a bit of a drive, but I just don’t feel like it should wear me out so much but goodness it does!
