  • 2 boxes Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice Chicken

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 1/2 cups cubed roasted or rotisserie chicken, ideally white meat
  • 2 1/2 cups store-bought tomato sauce
  • 3 1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

  1. Prepare rice as instructed on box.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F and spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with oil.

Healthy Whole Grain Solutions for Back to School Meals

(Family Features) - For many parents, back to school time can be stressful and hectic. Luckily, healthy eating doesn't have to be.

"As the mother of picky eaters, I am always trying to find ways to sneak nutritious foods into my
daughters' meals, especially during the school year when schedules can get packed and I don't have a lot of time to prepare dinner," said "Sneaky Chef" cookbook author Missy Chase Lapine.

"Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice is a great solution because I know I am providing a nutritious whole grain meal my girls will truly enjoy."

Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice is the first and only whole grain rice that looks and tastes like white rice.
Each serving contains nearly a full day's worth of whole grains and has 4 to 5 grams of fiber per serving, meeting nearly 20 percent of the daily recommendation. 

Lapine has created a number of kid-friendly, healthy and easy whole grain recipes that will help eliminate dinner table nutrition battles.
This recipe for Chicken Parmesan Rice Casserole combines comforting flavors with whole grains in an easy one-dish recipe.
