  • 2 bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans fat free condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, drained
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) package low-fat baked tortilla chips
  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (6 ounce) can black olives
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place chicken breasts in a pot of boiling water. Cook until meat shreds easily with a fork, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from water, and cool slightly. Remove meat and skin from bones, and shred.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup and canned tomatoes and mix together.
  3. Lightly coat a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In dish begin layering: 1/3 of the chicken, 1/3 of the soup mixture, then crumble tortilla chips on top. Repeat layers twice, ending with tortilla chips and a sprinkle of cheese on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Top casserole with lettuce, chopped tomato, olives, a couple of dollops of sour cream and a sprinkling of chives. Serve.
