Reviews for Blackened Chicken and Beans
"Great recipe! My family loved this dish."
"AMAZING!!! So moist, great flavor, low in fat and calories."
"Love this easy recipe. I butterfly two chicken breasts then cut them in half to cut the cooking time. Any leftovers I use in a quesadilla with cheese. Yum."
"I thought this sounded good but might be lacking in flavor so I made a few additions. I added 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 diced white onion, 1 piece of chopped bacon for flavor, and 2 mushrooms sliced.I sauteed the bacon first then put on a plate to drain. Then I browned the chicken on both sides and transfered to plate. I Then sauteed the onion, garlic, and mushroom.Add remaining ingredients and return bacon and chicken to pan and simmer for 10 minutes. I also garnished with a little lite sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro. This was delicious! My husband loved it!"
"Although, many people like this recipe, I really didn't like it. If you don't really like chilly powder and a lot of beans, you won't like it that much. I thought the salsa would be good, but I guess you really have to like beans to like it."
"Quick fix indeed! I doubled the bean mixture and used medium salsa. Served with a side salad, as recommended, and it was a delicious, fast meal after a busy day."
"This recipe is really good and super easy; I am watching my fat, calories, fiber, etc. so this was a great choice for me and I will definitely make it again!"
"This is a very simple recipe. It was very tasty! Will definitely make it again!"
"Great and Easy recipe! I have made this recipe with boneless, skinless chicken thighs, also. My husband and I like dark meat, too. I have also added garlic powder to the chicken. I have substituted the oil for bacon grease from 2 slices of cut up bacon and used the bacon pieces to spread on top before serving. I have added garlic powder, onion powder and a pinch of salt and pepper to the beans and corn and allowed to cook for 2 minutes before adding the salsa.No matter how you make it, it turns out GREAT! DELICIOUS..."
