Mexican Chicken...

I made this a couple weeks ago.....
This recipe is from The Deen Family Cookbook....another of my favorite cookbooks.
Serve up with some rice....and some guacamole and chips on the side.
A quick and easy recipe!
1 - 16 ounce jar salsa (2 cups)
1 cup chicken broth
1 - 7ounce bag tortilla chips
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 small onion, thinly sliced
3 cups (3/4 pound) grated monterey jack cheese (or pepperjack)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Combine the salsa and broth in a blender and process until smooth.  In a large bowl, toss the chips with 2 1/2 cups of the salsa mixture.  In a seperate bowl, toss the chicken with the remaining 1/2 cup salsa mixture.
In a greased 13" x 9" baking dish, layer one third of chips, followed by half of chicken, half of onion and only one third  of the cheese.  Repeat.  Top with the remaining chips and cheese.  Cover with foil and bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melting.  Serve hot!
