One Pot Mexican Chicken & Rice Casserole

This one pot Mexican chicken and rice casserole is the best one pot meal I have had in a while! With right amount of protein and carb, it’s a delicious and healthy weeknight meal!

One-Pot-Mexican_rice-CasseroleThough there are quite a few one pot recipes here @Flavor Quotient and also many recipes from world cuisine and not just Indian, we realized that we haven’t had a chance to try Mexican recipes yet; so, this one pot Mexican chicken & rice casserole fits the bill perfectly where we have one more one pot recipe in our collection and we also score our first mark with Mexican food! I have always read and felt the similarities between Mexican and Indian food but unless I try it on my own, I could hardly comment. Well now I can safely agree with that statement that there are significant resemblances between these two delicious cuisines, but still each have a unique characteristic of its own; hence none can overpower the other and simultaneously maintain their prominent position in the world of gastronomy!

This one pot Mexican chicken & rice has been a one-pot wonder to me in the real sense – it’s easy to put together and has the perfect balance of protein, fiber and carbohydrate to offer you the most rewarding meal of the day! If you love beans then this one is definitely for you; if you are not fond of beans which is quite possible (me too!), then you must try this one pot Mexican chicken and rice casserole and I guarantee that you will fall in love with the beans and corns and what not! You just can’t afford to miss this delicacy!
