This one-pot chicken Mexican rice casserole uses sweet potato for extra creaminess! It’s a healthy, gluten-free, 8-ingredient dinner for busy weeknights that is only 330 calories!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 pound Extra Lean Ground Turkey Or Chicken
  • 2-½ cups Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Brown Rice
  • 1 cup Mashed Sweet Potato (from A Medium Baked Potato)
  • ¾ cups Salsa Of Choice
  • Pinch Of Salt And Pepper
  • 4 cups Fresh Spinach, Roughly Chopped
  • ½ cups Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese Blend

Preparation

Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large, oven-safe skillet. Add turkey and cook, breaking into small pieces, until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet and cook until the water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 1 hour.
