Chicken parmesan rice casserole
Serves: 10, serving size: 1 cup, prep time: 45 minutes
2 boxes Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice Chicken
1 medium sweet potato
3 to 4 tablespoons water
2 1/2 cups cubed roasted or rotisserie chicken, ideally white meat
2 1/2 cups store-bought tomato sauce

For simple homemade Sneaky Chef Orange Puree, peel, chop and boil sweet potato and carrots for about 20 minutes until tender. Drain and add to food processor with 3 to 4 tablespoons water, and puree until smooth. (Makes about 2 cups of puree. Leftovers can be kept in refrigerator for up to three days, or frozen for up to three months.)
Place cooked rice and chicken in the prepared baking dish. Mix tomato sauce, and 1 cup Orange Puree (or baby food carrots) in a bowl.
Toss chicken and rice with sauce mixture and 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese. Top casserole with a combination of Parmesan and remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese, sprinkling evenly over top.
Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes or until top is lightly browned and bubbly.
