Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Crush the entire bag of Doritos and cover the bottom of the dish.

Reserve one cup of cheese. Mix together remaining ingredients in a large bow. Pour chicken mixture over the Doritos. Mix it up a little with the Doritos.

Bake uncovered for 20 min. Top casserole with the remaining cheese and bake 5 additional minutes or until melted.
