There’s something about a creamy casserole that is perfect for a chilly night. It’s comforting and rich and filling, and usually makes good leftovers. The usual suspects (mac n cheese, tuna and noodles) are always nice, but sometimes you want something a little more nutritious, and a bit different.
This recipe is just that. With a few veggies, brown rice, and a creamy sauce, it’s filling and nutritious. The seasoning, though, that takes it to a new level. It’s spicy, smoky, and all sorts of deliciousness all wrapped into one casserole dish.
Usually, these kinds of casseroles are made with those canned condensed soups you pick up in the soup aisle, but, you should know me better than that. We’re going to make our own sauce, because it’s surprisingly easy, and it has to be better for you right?
Once you’ve done that, you just put everything into a casserole dish and bake until it’s bubbly and your chicken and rice are cooked through. And voila! Comfort food for days!
