Reviews for Black Bean Chicken with Rice
"Made this exactly as written except added 2 additional chicken breasts. We found this to be pretty spicy as other reviewers have stated. My kids wouldn't eat it and they usually like salsa, corn and black beans."
"I made this as written except that I substituted thighs for the half-breasts (it's what I had). quick, easy and very tasty. Thanks for posting. Sour cream and cilantro would be a great addition, but very good without."
"The first time that I made this was a huge hit! Just the right amount of heat for my family. Also, I prepared 2 extra breaststroke which I froze for later."
"Very easy to make and a great flavor, I spiced it up easily for my family. A great recipe for a quick week night meal"
"Y husband and I really liked this. Easy to prepare and different from most chicken dishes I've prepared in the past."

"I used a little more salsa to keep the chicken moist. This is a new family favorite."
"Really good. The chicken had a little kick but my kids still liked it. I mixed the rice and bean mixture together and it was delicious. My husband suggested putting it in burritos."
"Easy, quick and tasty!"
"Very easy and ingredients that you have on hand. Will make again."

"made this just as recipe stated and it was excellent! It was so easy to make. This one is a definite keeper =)"
"Easy and very moist chicken. My daughter said it has the same flavor as a dish she orders at her favorite restaurant."
"This was delicous! The kids couldn't handle the spice so I had to tone down the chili the second time around. I paired it with long grain and wild rice instead."
"Very flavorful! I also noticed that it was a little dry so I added a can of diced tomatoes and it turned out wonderful!"
"This was very tasty and I would make it again. However, the chicken took about 25-30 minutes to cook through after adding the other ingredients, and because it took so long, the bean/corn/salsa mixture burned to the bottom of the non-stick pan and was very dry. I'd do it differently next time. But 5 stars for flavor."
"This was a great recipe! Did not change anything! it was a real hit! my husband loved it and even my 2 year old ate it! great as leftovers as well!"
"This recipe is a keeper! Leftovers would be great wrapped in burritos."
"Made this for supper tonight & it was really good. Didn't have frozen corn so I used a can of Mexicorn. Will definitely make again - a keeper!"
"This was delicious! Made it exactly as printed, except for the beans. I used canned brown ranch style, as that is all I had. And, we rolled it up in a flour tortilla and added some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Just spicy enough, but not too spicy. Family said this recipe is a winner! Next time, I will use the black beans, but it really isn't necessary. WONDERFUL!!!!"
"This has such a unique flavor, and we love all the different textures! We even mixed in the rice with the corn/bean mixture and served the chicken on top of that. It was so delicious and EASY! It's definitely going to become a regular recipe in our household. :)"
"This is now one of our favorite dishes! Great flavor. We used canned corn instead of frozen but other then that we stuck straight to the recipe. This is deffinately a keeper!"
"Delicious, filling and quick. You can adjust the "hot" by varying the salsa."
"excellent dish. My teenage children loved it!"
"I knew I had seen this recipe before... Then I remembered I had made it several times before seeing it in this cooking magazine. Oh yea I got it from BETTY CROCKER'S WEBSITE. It's called Spicy Skillet chicken almost exactly the same ingredients."
"We love it, but next time, I'm going to make the bean, corn and salsa mixture separately so that the bean mixture retains more of it's liquids."
"This was so tasty! I was doubtful because of the lack of onions or garlic but it was so flavorful. I made it in about 15 min (I cut my chicken into strips) not counting the rice cooking time and was very pleased. This will definitely become a regular dinner around here, especially because it was so quick and I always have the ingredients on hand."
"took no time at all and loved it!! Don't fear the spice, when mixed with the rice it tones down the spice. And for my toddlers I added tortillas to make tacos. They ate it up!"
"This recipe was so easy to make, I really loved all the flavor!"
"Delicious and easy. Made it for unxpected guests and everyone enjoyed it. Will definintely make it again."
"Very filling and very good. Used taco seasoning instead of chili powder and cumin. Didn't have those two ingridents at the time. Tasted very good!!"
"Delicious! I also added reduced-fat sour cream to top it off. We will definitely make this one again."
