  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • can of corn drained
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups crunched up Doritos the ones in the red bag
  • 8 ounce bag shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 head of lettuce
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes with chilis
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Pico de Gallo or Salsa


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Dice chicken into bite sized piece. In a large skillet add a small amount of oil (I used coconut oil), then add chicken, cumin, garlic powder and chili powder and cook until cooked all the way through.
  • In a bowl mix corn (drain water out of can first), sour cream, Pace and Pico De Gallo, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and mix well.
  • Add cooked chicken to corn/sour cream mixture and mix well.
  • In a large baking pan, spray with non stick spray. Then pour crunched up Doritos on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the chicken mixture on top of the Doritos, then add the cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted. While it is baking dice your tomato and lettuce.
  • Remove from oven and top with diced tomatoes and lettuce.
