      It always amazes me when a dish with super basic ingredients can taste so incredible! I only used one breast, and I substituted baby lima beans for the corn but everything else stayed the same. I only buy dried black beans which I precook and then freeze, so I thawed out the beans by steaming them. I then used that water to cook the brown rice...a nice little trick to add more flavor. Truly an exceptional dish that will most definitely be made again!!

      Tasty and easy. My husband loved it. We didn't have any garlic, so I seasoned the chicken with Goya Adobo.
