Zesty Chicken with Black Beans and Spanish Rice

Yum!! Tyler and I really liked this one! It is so simple to make and really fills you up!

Zesty Chicken with Black Beans and Spanish Rice


- 2 Tbs. cooking oil
-1 lb. boneless, skinless, chicken breast
- 1 (6 to 7.4 oz.) Spanish rice mix (I used a box of Spanish Rice Mix from the store, same thing!)
- 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
- (sour cream and green onion optional--- I used both these, they really add flavor!)

How to:

1. Heat 1 Tbs. of cooking oil over skillet (medium/high heat), add the chicken pieces and cook until chicken is lightly browned and cooked through
2. Cook rice as instructed on box or package, letting sit (covered) for 5 minutes after cooking.
3. Add tomatoes, beans, a little pepper and green onion to chicken in skillet and stir around on low heat for a couple minutes (until rice has had a chance to sit for 5 min)
4. Add rice to skillet mixture, stir around... take off heat to cool
5. Add sour cream to top if desire!

This would also be a great meal for winter time, it reminds me of a stew or soup! :)
