Chicken Frito Pie

This is a nice alternative to the usual Frito pie with hamburger meat. Grew up with this dish in the 60's. It's sort of a neighborhood block party favorite!



  • 1 whole chicken
  • 3 ribs celery
  • 1 1/2 onions, chopped, divided
  • 2 (10-oz.) cans of tomato soup
  • 1 (16-oz.) bag of Fritos
  • 12 slices of American cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place chicken in a large pot with 1 onion and celery; cover with water; boil until juices run clear. Remove chicken from broth and when cool enough to handle, debone chicken and shred into bit size pieces; set aside. Strain chicken broth; discard celery and onion; set broth aside.

In a large bowl, combine tomato soup and 2 soup cans of chicken broth; whisk to mix completely.

Line bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan with Fritos. Cover with half the chicken, half the remaining onion, and half the tomato mixture. cover this with 6 slices of cheese (each lying side by side). Repeat with remaining Fritos, chicken, onion, tomato mixture and cheese. Bake 45 minutes.
