The Dish 

This healthier version of the classic casserole is chock-full of better-for-you ingredients. Boneless skinless chicken breast and brown rice are tossed in a garlicky, low fat Greek yogurt base before being baked to bubbly perfection. A crispy, whole wheat bread crumb and parmesan topping adds a bit of a crunchy texture to the overall dish. This recipe has several prep-ahead options to optimize time for our busy Fitness Blender friends. We definitely recommend pairing this recipe with a number of our veggie-forward side dishes. We love steamed or sauteed leafy greens or grilled summer veggies — they really pair well with this creamy casserole! 

Prepping Ahead/Time Saving Tips

This casserole can be prepped, stored in the skillet, covered, and refrigerated until ready to bake and serve. (A chilled casserole may take 5-10 minutes longer, unless you allow the casserole to come to room temperature before baking). This recipe could also be prepped, baked, chilled, and reheated for an even quicker meal.
