Microwave Taco Chicken

This is another one of my mother-in-laws recipes. We love this, and it is so great to have on those cold winter days (or cold spring days). It is  very easy to make, and you can feed a lot of people (or double it and feed even more people)! We call it microwave taco chicken, but it is not done in the microwave, and I have no idea why we call it this.  Our kids love this too, mostly because of the tortilla chips and the cheese. This is also a great recipe to freeze!

Microwave Taco Chicken

 2 14 ½ oz crushed tomatoes

1 pkg taco seasoning mix

½ kosher salt

¼ tsp garlic powder

3 whole chicken breasts cubed and cooked

1 can green chilies

1 c chicken broth

2 tbsp cornstarch

1 can olives drained and chopped

 Pour tomatoes into a large saucepan. Add salt, garlic, green chilies, olives, and heat. In another small pan, add cornstarch to chicken broth and heat on low while stirring until dissolved. Meanwhile, cook chicken with taco seasoning. Add meat to tomato mixture, and then add broth. Stir until thickened. Serve on top of crushed tortilla chips with shredded cheese and sour cream.
