Cheesy Chicken, Rice & Veggie Bake

One of the perks of ordering Chinese food is that there are always leftovers.  We can’t possibly eat everything that comes with the meal, so we end up having another Asian feast the next day.  Yay!

Even spreading it over two days, we’re still left with white rice that we never seem to eat.  I hate to throw it away, so into the freezer it goes, awaiting my next flash of gastronomic genius.  My first clever idea was to whip up a quick rice pudding for Mexican Girls’ Night.  This time, I decided to use it with some diced chicken packets from the South Beach Wrap kits I so adore.  Thus was born the latest culinary creation of the Sassy Chef.
