  3. Then prepare and cook your rice.
  4. Once your meat is fully cooked add in your cut vegetables and mix together.
  5. Let simmer, then add in your chicken broth and tomato sauce. Mix all together.
  6. Then add in your rice and once again mix together.
  7. Once everything is combined, place it in a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.
  8. When you ready to eat. preheat your oven to 375 F and heat up for 20 minutes.
  9. 15 minutes into heating, uncover and add your shredded mozzarella cheese I like to add a bit and mix it in then cover the top full of cheese. place it back in the oven for the remaining 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  10. Done! Time to enjoy.


If you think that there your rice bake is to watery, do not panic. As it cools the rice absorbs majority of the liquid.
