Want something fast, easy, and cheap to make on that typical Monday night where you don't want to do anything other than feed and bathe the kids and crawl into bed? This is it! And it was awesome...
The prep time probably took me all of 10 minutes and I threw it in the oven! Not only that but it's a pretty well rounded meal all in one casserole dish! You have protein with the chicken and eggs, grains with the rice (I used brown rice), veggies with the red pepper, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, then you have the dairy with the cheese and milk... I mean really... it contains everything!
1.5 cups cooked chicken breast (shredded or cubed)
2 cups cooked rice
2 cups Monterrey Jack (shredded)
2 eggs beaten
2 tbsp butter (melted)
1 can (12oz) evaporated milk
1/2 cup red onion (diced)
1 red bell pepper (diced)
1 jalapeno (diced)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
Boil chicken breasts until cooked though. Shred or chop the chicken.
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Spread into a greased casserole dish and cook at 350F for 35-45 minutes; or until knife can be inserted and comes out clean.
EASY PEASY! Enjoy!
