Look no more! Chicken and Black Beans is a stick-to-your-ribs Mexican dinner favorite that can be prepared in no time.

What You'll Need

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4-inch strips (1 to 1 ¼ pounds total)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14 ½-ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes (see Note)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup long- or whole-grain rice
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes

What to Do

  1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned.
     
  2. Add remaining ingredients then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
     
  3. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
     

Note

If you can't find Mexican-style stewed tomatoes in your supermarket, just use regular stewed tomatoes and add 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa.

Very bland. Needs a lot more spice, but is a good recipe to start off of.

Made this tonight it was fantastic my fiance and i loved it.

This was well received by everyone in our house. I couldn't find the Mexican style stewed tomatoes so we used the regular stewed tomatoes and added about a 1/2 cup of salsa. Overall it was a pretty yummy dish!
