Gluten-free Mozzarella Chicken And Rice Bake Recipe From Val's Kitchen

I like rice in tomato sauce. It’s a different way to change things up from time to time. This easy dish offers a more Italian flavor. Plus, it’s covered with cheesy goodness, and you can never go wrong with that. The dish is nice and moist. Even on the second day it doesn’t dry out a ton, making the leftovers perfect for bringing to work or school on the second day and reheating. Here’s how I make it.
