Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Pound chicken breasts until they are all the same degree of thickness. Season chicken with grubs. Heat a skillet over medium high heat with butter and extra virgin olive oil. Add chicken to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside. Add onions, bell pepper, jalapenos, mushrooms, kosher salt/ground black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms release their liquid. Add garlic, oregano, chili powder, cumin, and flour to the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the milk and stir, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook until the mixture begins to thicken. Add 1 ½ cups of the chicken cooking liquid, stir, and cook until very thick and flavorful, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Place the tortilla chips in the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch glass casserole. Crush the chips with your hands so they form a thin layer on the bottom of the dish. Scatter the chicken over the top of the tortilla layer. Top with 1 cup of shredded cheese. Pour sauce over the chicken and top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the casserole is heated through. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
