I decided to follow SissieSass (below) and bake this in the oven rather than make it in a skillet. It worked perfectly and was very good to eat. We added a couple of chopped fresh garlic cloves and used chicken stock instead of the soup (I do not like soup as a sauce, it always tastes like soup!). It was a really good family meal and simple enough to prepare to make it suitable for a week night after a busy work day.

I make a dish similar to this, but I cook all of it in the oven. I cut the chicken into pieces and bake for 35 minutes on 350. Once cooked I add three cans Rotel and 6 cups rice already cooked. I finish it with a block of Velveeta in the oven for another 15 minutes. I think that your recipe sounds so yummy and it might be a lot crispier than mine. I want to make both and see the difference.
