Add a Little Spice

For dinner tonight I cooked a healthy casserole dish that I found online.  The fire-roasted tomatoes really made the dish pop; it was delicious and filling!  A perfect meal to top off the long run earlier in the day. Parents enjoyed it as well.

Chicken-Asiago Casserole with Rice and Fire-Roasted Tomatoes



1 cup cooked brown rice (I used brown basmati)
1 pound cubed chicken breasts
1 14.5 ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 cup shredded Asiago cheese (I used shredded Parmigiano/Romano/Asiago)                      
2 teaspooons dried oregano
salt and ground pepper to taste

1.  Preheat oven to 350.

2.  Mix ingredients well (using 1/2 the cheese and some fresh chopped basil) and transfer mixture to a baking dish.

3.  Top with rest of cheese.

4.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

5.  Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes, until cheese is golden.

6. Top with more fresh chopped basil.

(double the recipe for enjoyment over next few days)

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
