Reviews for Black Bean Chicken with Rice for Two
"Good spicy flavorful chicken! I used a medium salsa and it was just a tad bit spicy for my taste. Next time, I will use a mild salsa. It was easy to make as well"
"Awesome meal. Only used half the chili powder and it was perfect for the whole family!"
"This was good - nice & spicy. Forgot I didn't have corn so the salsa part wasn't that great without it. Just baked chicken in the oven and made the salsa separately."
"This is one of my favorites. Fast & easy and taste great."
"Quick, easy and tasty."
"Very easy to make using an electric skillet. In the future I will reduce the amount of chili powder as my family thought it was too spicy. I'll also use an instant rice to reduce the cooking time."
"Very easy to make, chicken was tender. Next time I'll use a hotter salsa to add more flavor to the corn and beans."
