Reviews for Blackened Chicken and Beans
"Great recipe! My family loved this dish."
"AMAZING!!! So moist, great flavor, low in fat and calories."
"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."
"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..."
