Unlike a lot of slow cooker recipes this one does require you to start out with cooked chicken. If you don’t want to prepare the chicken ahead of time buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it.

Another quick tip is to purchased precooked unseasoned chicken from the meat section or freezer section of your grocery store. If the chicken is frozen thaw it before putting it in he slow cooker.

I really like the crunch of the Tortilla chips in this dish. To make sure I get that crunch I crush some of the remaining chips on the plate and then dish the King Ranch Chicken Casserole on top. Trust me this is the only way to eat it.
