- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
- 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons Grace Foods Mild Jerk Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 cups cooked white rice
- Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
- Add the chicken pieces to the skillet and cook until they are browned on all sides. Make sure the chicken is cooked through, but avoid overcooking, as it will continue to cook in the oven. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, coconut milk, Grace Foods Mild Jerk Seasoning, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix well to incorporate the flavors.
- In a greased baking dish, spread half of the cooked white rice as the bottom layer. Arrange the chicken pieces over the rice, followed by the diced bell peppers, mushrooms, and frozen peas.
- Pour the tomato and coconut milk mixture evenly over the casserole, ensuring that all the ingredients are well-coated.
- Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and the casserole is bubbling and slightly golden on top.
- Once done, take the casserole out of the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Sprinkle fresh chopped cilantro on top for added freshness and aroma.
- Serve the oven-baked chicken casserole hot with a side of remaining white rice or a fresh green salad. Enjoy the harmonious blend of flavors and the tantalizing kick of Grace Foods Mild Jerk Seasoning!
- Feel free to customize the casserole by adding your favorite vegetables like carrots or zucchini.
- For an extra touch of heat, you can add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce.
