Hello there friends! Hope your day is sunny and bright.
Busy next couple of week here.
Just 2 more days until my daughters graduation party! Ugh where does the time go?!
My parents will be here soon.
I still have so much to do!
So with Craziness I enjoy easy recipes.
Here is a yummy one I want to share with you.
T’s Caprese Chicken & Rice Casserole
2 tomatoes, cut up
2 T tomato paste
1 T white wine vinegar
2 T dry milk
Sea salt, to taste
2 C Shredded Chicken
1 C cooked rice
1/4 C Parmesan cheese, grated
1 C shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 C grape tomatoes, halved
1 1/2 T dry basil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
To make the sauce, combine tomatoes, paste and vinegar in a saucepan on medium heat and bring to a simmer. Add dry milk and salt/pepper and continue cooking until heated through.
In a round baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray, mix together chopped chicken, rice, Parmesan cheese and a ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Add sauce to mixture, be sure to mix well. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil and garlic powder. Be certain to crush the basil between your fingers as you spread it, this helps to liven it up a bit.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, just until cheese is melted and casserole is heated all the way through. Serve and enjoy!

Until next time...
