Veggie Chicken and Rice

Hello everyone, sorry this blog is coming up late this morning. So as promised today's blog is for all those times you wind up with left over rice but have no clue what to do with it. Well I have a yummy and healthy meal for you that requires a lot of veggies a little bit of chicken and just all around goodness. You will need: Rice, onion, green pepper, summer squash, diced green beans, green onion, garlic, white meat chicken, healthy choice cream of chicken soup low sodium (or if you like the reg cream of chicken soup have at it), carrots, and seasonings of your choice, I used curry, salt and pepper.
Saute your veggies in a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil just until soft, add your rice and heat it through just until the rice is warmed up. Add your chicken and cream of chicken soup one can with a quarter cup of milk, after the rice mixture is well blended add your seasonings. Grab a casserole dish, spray it with cooking spray, then add your rice mixture. Top it with a little bit of cheese, I used grated Parmesan and mix of mozzarella and cheddar made with skim milk. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. Let it set for about 15 minutes, and serve it up. I had this with my tex mex bean salad, however you could serve this with some nice crusty bread or a side salad. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my family did. In the meantime make sure you take the time to live, laugh and love.
