Steps

  • 1 In deep 12-inch skillet or wok, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned. Add soup; cook over high heat 8 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt cream cheese with whipping cream over low heat, stirring frequently. Stir in chile and chile liquid until well blended. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm. In 5-quart Dutch oven, heat canola oil over medium-high heat or to 350°F.
