1 Hr 10 Min

Why didn't we think of this before?! Why, Chili'd Chicken is a whole scrumptious meal. (Have the folks in Texas been keeping it a secret?)

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 8 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, drained (juice reserved), and chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion, and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft; set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together onions, chili powder, and kidney beans; set aside.
  3. Lightly oil a 9- x 13-inch baking pan with remaining oil; add kidney bean mixture. Arrange chicken over top of beans, pressing chicken into bean mixture. Spoon tomatoes over beans and chicken, and add reserved tomato juice.
  4. Bake chicken 65 minutes then remove from the oven, sprinkle with shredded cheese, and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted, chicken is fork-tender and no pink remains.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

DEFINATELY us red beans (not kidney), boneless/skinless thigh strips, pkg of 'chili seasoning mix' (instead of chili powder) and MORE cheese (2c). GREAT recipe!

I am from TX also, and I would add a lot more chili powder and jalapenos. You can also do this recipe with just about any kind of meat. ps: I never eat kidney beans, it's pinto beans around these parts (Dallas)!

KIDNEY beans? From someone in TEXAS? PINTO beans (red beans)!!!

Definitely going to try this. Could you use your own homemade pinto beans here with the same effect, or use any other chicken parts you wanted. Sounds yummy to me.
