Chicken and Rice Casserole with Chiles, Corn, and Black Beans
Any way you prepare it, chicken and rice is a classic combination. In this case, we wanted to make an all-in-one casserole that paired the chicken with Latin ingredients like chiles, corn, and black beans.
Why This Recipe Works
After many failed attempts to cook the chicken and rice together for our chicken and rice casserole, we finally accepted that the rice should be cooked on the stovetop until just tender before being blended with the chicken, which cooked through in the hot liquid in just a few minutes. Once the two prime components in our chicken and rice casserole recipe were set, we added corn, black beans, and a heaping helping of Monterey Jack cheese, and then turned the mix into a casserole dish and baked it in a hot oven to marry the ingredients.
