Chicken Enchilada Casserole

I cut this recipe in half because I knew my family would not eat the whole thing and I didn't think it would be very good as left overs. I was so glad I did. I used one can of green enchilada sauce. I also had some chicken that I had cooked already, so I simmered it in the enchilada sauce for a few minutes. This came together very fast especially with the chicken already cooked. Seems like most of the ingredients are optional so play around with it. We really liked it as long as it had the sour cream on it. Without the sour cream it would just be okay.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

1-2 chicken breasts
1 28 oz can enchilada sauce (or 2 small cans or one small can and one can tomato sauce)
1/2 c corn (optional)
1/2 small onion (optional)
Tortilla Chips, crushed
1 c shredded cheese
sliced olives (optional)
sour cream (optional)

Put endhilada sauce into sauce pan. Add chicken breasts, corn and onions to sauce and boil. Once chicken is boiled and cooked through, shred.
While chicken is cooking, preheat oven to 350.
Take a 9x13 pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Line pan with crushed tortilla chips.
Pour chicken, corn, onion and sauce mixture over chips.
Top with cheese and olives.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
Top with sour cream and serve.
