Easy and Great Tasting Chicken Dish! Serve with rice and add a salad and bread, and you are done! Add an extra breast and thigh for extra chicken. Can be made with boneless chicken breasts as well. If you like things a little more spicy, add some more cumin and cayenne to your black beans!

The garnishes are really what make this 5 star. They all meld so well together with the meat and vegetables. I baked this at 375 for 50 minutes so I didn't have to worry about it sticking. It gave the red pepper a nice roasted flavor. I scaled this down for 2 people, but still used the whole pepper and whole can of beans. I did not add any water to the baking dish, used 2 garlic cloves and doubled the cumin.
Since it's been pouring rain all day I decided to use Maito's oven method to help warm the place up. It came out looking great and was delicious. I loved the toppings (skipped the sour cream). Used boneless breast halves and, although I halved the amount I still used the full amount of cumin and cayenne. YUM.
We loved this! The flavors were wonderful. I omitted the salt (personal preference). The garnishes really kicked this over the top, and the lime juice added a brilliant zing. Keeper! Thanks for sharing!
