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."
