i cut the breast in chunks, used hot rotel, added 2 cans of beans and ommitted the cilantro because I didn't have any. I would have given it 5 stars, but there is too much cumin for my taste. Super delicious tho!

It was good but wasn't great. I used regular diced tomatoes and didn't use cilantro because I didn't have any...maybe that's why it didn't turn out as good as expected. I may try again, following the recipe exactly. If I do I'll update my review.

Thank you for sharing a really yummy, healthy, filling meal! I will probably double up on the black beans next time, and I cut the chicken up into chunks instead of cooking the breasts as a whole. I served it over brown rice. Yum!
