Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Toss chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat; saute chicken until browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from pan.
In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; saute rice until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Stir in beans, canned tomatoes, seasonings and broth; bring to a boil.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Any can of beans you have in your pantry will taste great in this recipe. We particularly like pintos and kidney beans here.
  • Bump up the health factor by using brown rice instead of white.

    "Very good, however, if not on a salt restricted diet I would definetly add some salt or use regular chicken broth instead of reduced-sodium. Since I like onions in a recipe like this I added 1/2 medium diced onion and cooked in pan while browning the rice. This was a quick and easy recipe that I will make again. I will also try this recipe with ground beef instead of chicken."
