Brazilian Chicken and Black Beans and Rice

Wonderful main dish 'salad' to be served cold, but it's wonderful eaten warm too. A good Mexican rice and fresh cilantro are musts. So easy - this is my favorite thing to eat for any meal! It would be good for a side dish (omitting the chicken in lieu of grilled chicken) or can be adapted for a vegetarian diet.

The whole family loved this dish! Thank you for such a great recipe. I agree that it would be better to cook the meat in some sort of seasonings for more flavor, but other than that I thought it was perfect.

Interesting blend of flavors and a very satisfying meal. Would recommend adding some garlic (or other spices to your preference) to cook the chicken in to add some flavor to the meat, since it didn't pick up much from the other ingredients.

I love this dish! It's filling and the blend of flavors is wonderful. I eat it with a dollop of sour cream and several dashes of Frank's Red Hot sauce on top. Mm-mmmm!
