2 cups shredded chicken breast or diced grilled chicken
4 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup frozen corn
1 -15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups low fat sour cream
1 can of Rotel drained
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup grated cheddar & monterey jack cheese (low-fat cheese works too!) + more for topping if desired
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly to combine. Make sure the sour cream and cheese is mixed in throughout the entire bowl. Transfer to an oven-safe dish and top with extra cheese . Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
As suggested by the original poster of the recipe....To make this process easier, I always have cooked rotisserie chicken on hand, and use Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice. If you have those two things, this meal can be throw together in a matter of minutes and doesnt taste like it at all.
I maKe this recipe a lot. I always have the ingredients in my house and while my kids dont eat the actual "bake" they eat all the components of it so I can easily deconstruct it and they will be thrilled. They are so weird in their old age that they will eat all the things in it, but not mixed into one dish.....annoying yes! But I should be happy my kids eat Chicken, Rice and Beans. This is the perfect weeknight meal in our house and it will continue to stay a staple
