Ingredients

    1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced in 1' cubes
    1 cup salsa
    1 package frozen mixed veggies (or 2 cups diced veggies of your choice)
    3/4 cup white rice (or brown or jasmine)
    1/2 cup milk
    1/4 cup shredded Colby cheese (or cheddar)
    1 cup water (or stock)

Tips

The kind of veggie mix you use could change calorie content. I had a kind that included beans, so I'm sure the protein & fiber was higher but so were calories.


Directions

Dice chicken into cubes, cover with salsa to marinate in fridge up to 6 hours, if you have time. In a 9x9 casserole, add rice, milk, water, veggies, chicken and salsa and mix. Cover with shredded cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 90 minutes, or 400 for 60 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes about 3 servings, ~1 cup each.

Number of Servings: 3
