It is time I got back to the Tried it Out Thursday posts.  I found this one along with many other delicious things over at An 'A' For Effort. I was hooked at first glance of her picture!! It was delicious!!

Santa Fe Chicken
adapted from An 'A' For Effort
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken
1 can diced chilies
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1 can sliced olives, divided
1/2 cup diced onions
Doritos tortilla chips
8 ounces Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9 x13 pan.Brown chicken in olive oil for 15 minutes. Shred chicken.
Combine soup, sour cream, water, chilies, 1/2 can olives, and 1/4 cup onions.  Stir in chicken and half of the cheese.  Pour mixture in the pan.  Top with remaining olives and onions.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350.  Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
Serve over crushed tortilla chips.
*I meant to add a can of black beans, but got busy and forgot.  So next time!!
If you want to add a bit more spice replace the chilies with jalapenos.
Thanks Abby!!
