Directions:
Cook chicken until tender, reserving the broth. Bone and cut into small pieces. (If you are a little lazy as we are, or if you don't particularly care for dark meat, just use boneless chicken breasts.) In a 2 qt. casserole, place layers of chicken, tortillas cut into one inch strips, grated cheese and onion. Use the ingredients. Mix the soup, tomatoes and chilies, green chilies and chicken broth and heat the mixture through. Pour of the mixture over the layers in the casserole. Repeat using the remaining ingredients with the soup mixture on top. Bake at 350 for one hour.
