Green Chili Rice Bake with Chicken

A few years back, we visited a friend in Arizona.  She made a delicious side dish that I kept thinking of weeks later.  So I contacted her for the recipe, and adapted it to. Are it a main dish, by adding chicken.  As most of my recipes are, it’s quick and easy!  Enjoy!!

Green Chili Rice Bake with Chicken


  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 2 (4 oz.) cans diced green chilies
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cups shredded Monterrey Jack or pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine rice and remaining ingredients, reserving 1 cup of the cheddar cheese for topping.
  2. Transfer the rice mixture to a greased 2 quart baking dish. Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Remove from oven and sprinkle with the reserved cup of cheddar cheese.
  3. Place under the broiler for about 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Garnish with additional chopped cilantro, if desired.
