We have been trying to eat healthy in the new year. This is a delicious recipe that 
does not use the staple canned cream of mushroom soup and uses brown rice instead of white.

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast

  • 1 can diced green chilies
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 tablespoon diced jalapeños (to taste)
  • Salt
    1. PREHEAT oven to 350–F. Lightly grease 2-quart casserole.
    2. COMBINE all ingredients and pour into prepared casserole; stir well.
    3. BAKE 45 to 50 minutes. Season with salt.
