2.Once mixture is in the casserole dish, push chicken pieces down into the rice salsa mixture and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour.

3.Remove casserole out of the oven and sprinkle on half the chilies and *jalapenos (optional). Sprinkle sharp cheddar cheese all over the top and lastly sprinkle on the other half of chilies and jalapenos.
