  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Large, chopped to make 1 cup
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced to make 1 teaspoon
  Chili powder 1 Tablespoon
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Diced tomatoes with green chilies 1 Can (10 oz)
  Chicken broth 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Bay leaf 1 Small
  Grated cheddar cheese 3 Ounce (3/4 Cup)

1. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Add onion and cook until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 to 45 seconds. Reduce heat to medium-low, add chili powder and oregano, and cook, stirring frequently, until meat is coated and spices are aromatic, 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Add tomatoes, broth, and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until chicken is tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
4. Heat oven to 350°F.
5. Mix cheeses together. Spread 1 1/3 cups chicken mixture in the baking dish and top with 8 tortilla quarters. Add another 1 1/3 cups chicken mixture, topped with half of the cheese mixture. Top with remaining 8 tortilla quarters and cover evenly with remaining chicken. Dot with sour cream, and cover with remaining cheese. Bake until cheeses are melted and sauce is bubbly, about 30 minutes.
