How about that title? Haha!! It’s a mouthful. Just like this casserole. Oh. My. Gosh. This is to DIE for!! It made a whole bunch and we were just fine with that because we ate it for lunch and dinner for almost a week. I love how the sweetness of the honey shines through while still being a savory dish.
Honey and lime together…a match made in heaven.

I’ve been on a mission to find dinners I can make ahead and bake later or ones that are portable. You’ll probably see a lot of those from me in the next several weeks:) Soccer is in full swing and I’m trying to figure out how dinner works into that schedule. This casserole is a total homerun and a definite keeper!

1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 1/2 cups long grain rice or brown rice, cooked (measured uncooked)
1 16 oz. bottle salsa verde
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
1 15 oz. sweet corn, rinsed and drained, or you can use frozen
1 4 oz. can green chilies

10 Minute Marinade
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup lime juice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
dash – 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
dash – 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for more heat)

Preheat panggangan to 350 degrees.

In a very large bowl, whisk together the 10 Minute Marinade ingredients. Add cooked chopped chicken and let marinate at least 10 minutes.

Mix cheeses together and add 2 cups cheese, salsa verde, rice, sour cream, green chilies, and corn to the chicken and marinade. Stir until evenly combined. It will seem a little “wet” which is normal.

Add chicken/rice mixture to a 9 x 13 casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes or until hot in the center then broil until cheese is golden.

Serve with desired garnishes. Enjoy!!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
