Asking yourself what the heck is Fritorole right now? Good. Because it’s a word I made up. But it’s what it sounds like – a Fritos casserole. Yes that means a casserole that involves using an entire bag of Fritos in the ingredients. Legit? Very.
I got the idea for the Chicken Fritorole from recipes for chili casseroles using Fritos. I don’t care too much for chili, but love a good chicken casserole, and love Fritos, so I decided to see what I could come up with. For the record I am writing this up immediately after I made the Fritorole for dinner, because it is that good that I feel the need to share it with the world. So run to the store, grab what you need, and make it for dinner tonight. And share it with your significant other, and they will love you a little more for it.
Here’s What You Need:
1 15 Oz Can Tomato Sauce
1 10 Oz Can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Sour Cream (I used low fat)
1 Package Ground Chicken
1 Bag Fritos
1 Bag Mild Cheddar Cheese
Here’s What You Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a greased pan lay enough Fritos to cover the bottom of the pan, about half if you are using a cake pan. Cover those Fritos in half of the cheese.
2, Season your chicken as desired, I used some dry onion, grilled chicken seasoning, and salt. Cook in a large sauté pan until cooked all the way through. Add tomato sauce and cream of chicken soup and stir well. Keep over medium-low heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Remove from heat and add sour cream, mixing well. Pour over Fritos and cheese in pan. Top with remaining Fritos and cheese.
4. Cook in oven until brown on top, around 20 minutes. Allow to cool before serving. Enjoy!
