4. Preheat oven to 350° F. And cut the rest of the onion into thin slices. Using 1/3 of the tortillas, place a layer of tortilla chips at the bottom of a baking dish. Add another layer using half of the shredded chicken, 1/3 of the sliced onion and 1/3 of shredded cheese. Pour some of the tomato sauce into baking dish.
