2 whole Boneless, Cooked Skinless Chicken Breasts shredded
4 cups Cooked long grain Rice
¾ cups Frozen Corn
15 ounces, fluid Can Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
4 ounces, fluid Can Green Chilis
½ cups Salsa
1 cup Low-fat Cheddar Cheese, Plus More For Topping
2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro For Garnish
1 4 oz can of chopped black olives
2 Tbsp ground Cumin
To make this process easier, I always have cooked chicken on hand. If you have chicken on hand and leftover rice from stir fry, this can be throw together in a matter of minutes! It can also easily be made ahead of time and reheated.
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for cilantro and mix thoroughly to combine. Make sure the yogurt and cheese are 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.
