Brazilian Chicken and Black Beans and Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Musical Joy

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.
