This image courtesy of

This one pot meal idea is one of the easiest chicken casserole recipes to make because all of cooking happens on the stove top instead of in the oven. Chipotle peppers and chili powder add irresistible flavor to this Spanish Chicken and Rice Skillet Casserole recipe from Anne Colagioia. In the world of healthy chicken recipes, this gluten free offering is one of the best options for quick weeknight cooking.


If you are following a gluten free diet, be sure to use gluten free chicken broth in the recipe. You can easily change the veggies or flavor profile of this dish to suit your tastes but be sure to keep the ratio of rice and liquid ingredients the same so that the rice will cook properly.
