Just wanted to let you know that your newest favorite, weeknight meal is sponsored by my friends at Pomi!
This gluten free chicken rice casserole is made in one pot and has delicious Indian curry flavors! It’s a quick and easy, healthy weeknight meal!
WARNING: this post contains a little bit of braggin’.
TOTALLY rightfully so though, dontcha worry.
If you follow FFF on Instagram you will know that I had this moment of total crazy-out-of-my-mind-ness when I volunteered to cook dinner EVERY SINGLE Saturday night for Mr. FFF’s study group until school is done. Liiiike, 8 25-35-year-old men for 3 YEARS.
Three. T-H-R-E-E. Am I insane?
Don’t answer that.
Anyway. I’ve been playing it PRETTY safe with things like a Mexican Shakshuka recipe and Pho Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches. No one hates Mexican food and no MAN hates pulled pork sandwiches, right?
Safe bets ALL ‘ROUND.
Once they were lured into a sense of comfort (these are Midwest meat-and-potatoes kinda men, ya know) I made them Moroccan style paleo pork chops with spiralized apple noodles. You know, to test the taste-bud waters.
Which they TOTALLY digged! <– WIN.
You know what’s next, right? Time to take the FLAVOR TOWN DIVE into (my favorite evahhhh <3 <3) INDIAN FOOD.
Whiiiich is where this spicy casserole, loaded with tender, chewy rice and swirls of rich tomato and creamy coconut milk and bursts of sweet golden raisins in every single bite, comes into PLAY.
Spoiler alert: thanks to me, they now know good food and are 100% addicted to Indian food. They even went out to an Indian buffet for lunch the VERY NEXT DAY! Even the ones that had NEVER had Indian food in their LIVES <– Can you even believe how someone had gone 30 years without curry? SO MUCH TIME TO MAKE UP FOR.
So, one pot rice casseroles. I’m sort of in love with them lately in the sense that:
- SO EASY. One pot. Stir it all together. Cook, cook, cook –> VOILA! Dinner deliciousness
- Liiiiike, one dish to clean. I am “that girl” that complains about the #FirstWorldProblem that is – GASP – having to unload the dishwasher EVERY SINGLE DAY. So, yes, me likey.
- The perfect combination of protein + carbs + veggies. Nourishing dinner SAY WHAA.
- Major win the in the still-tastes-good-the-next-day-and-freezes-super-fab leftover department.
Don’t you love spending NO time making a meal that you can also use as a meal for ALL the days after it? This spicy-sweet and chewy-tender casserole is BASICALLY the superhero of your easy-dinner-loving LIFE.
Let’s talk about tomatoes for a sec. Which, on the surface, may sound like one of the least exciting topics of life when there are so many other topics we could talk about (OH EM GEE, did you see what Kim Kardashian wore yesterday? It’s okay, I didn’t either) but they’re from Italy!
These tomatoes made a JOURNEY just for YOUR FACE.
This casserole gets creaminess from a 1-2 PUNCH of coconut milk and Pomi’s Organic Strained Italian Tomatoes, which come in a BPA-free package and taste EXACTLY like garden-ripe fresh tomatoes!
They’ve done all the hard work for you – no need to get into your garden to make some tomato magic. Whiiich, if you’re anything like me and actually killed a cactus once, is VRY VRY good news to your ears.
