If you have some prepared chili verde sauce, you cannot get much simpler than this dish. (Well, I guess if you have some leftover cooked chicken, it would even be simpler.) You could also buy jarred chili verde sauce or substitute tomatillo salsa instead of making your own. The resulting dish is pure comfort food with a Mexican twist.
Chili Verde Hotdish
1/2 T olive oil
2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt & pepper
1 c uncooked white rice
2 c chili verde sauce
1/2 c water
cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken & sauté until cooked through.
Mix the chicken with the rice, chili verde sauce & water. Put into a baking dish. Cover with tin foil or top, if the dish has one, & back for about 40 minutes, until the rice is tender. Remove cover & sprinkle the grated cheese over the top. Bake for 10 more minutes until the cheese is melted & bubbly.
Serve with sour cream & hot sauce.
Makes 4 - 5 servings.
