- 4 cups shredded cooked chicken (about 3 large breasts)
- 2 cups instant rice
- 1 (10.5-ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup frozen diced onion and bell pepper blend
- 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes with chilies (like Ro*Tel), undrained
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 (1.12-ounce) packet fajita seasoning ( I prefer McCormick)
- 1 (8-ounce) shredded Mexican blend cheese ( about 2 cups)
- Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish with a non stick cooking spray.
- Now combine the chicken, uncooked rice, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, diced onion and bell peppers, tomatoes with chilies, fajita seasoning, chicken broth and about half of the cheese into a large bowl.
- Mix all of that together until it’s combined well. Pour that into the baking dish and spread it around evenly.
- Bake for around 25 minutes and remove it from the oven. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the casserole and put it back into the oven until the cheese is melted.
