I have been expecting rain all day today. Not!!! Had the windows open for a little while but then it turned too warm and I had to turn on the fan.
Our recipe today is back to a lighter recipe. It is from howsweeteats.com. This sounds delicious and oh so easy. She even gives you a shortcut idea. We all love shortcuts.
Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, grilled and shredded
4 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup frozen corn
1 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup plain greek yogurt (you can use sour cream)
1 4 ounce can green chilis
1/2 cup chunky salsa
1 cup grated cheddar & monterey jack cheese (low-fat cheese works too!) + more for topping if desired
cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for cilantro and mix thoroughly to combine.
Make sure the yogurt and cheese is stirred in throughout the entire bowl.
Season with salt and pepper if desired.
Transfer to an oven-safe dish and top with extra cheese if you would like.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
Garnish with chopped cilantro.
To make this process easier have cooked chicken on hand, and use Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice. If you have those two things, this meal can be thrown together in a matter of minutes! It can also easily be made ahead of time and reheated.
Gotta get home and maybe do some baking. What!!! Me in the kitchen. Oh my.
See you at the shop.
