    FloridaNative's Note:

    This recipe from a friend calls for either black beans or pinto beans to be used in the mix. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts in place of the whole cut up chicken.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      NOTE: I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder baked in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes in place of the whole chicken. I prepared the chicken breasts at the same time I was preparing the beans.
    2. 2
      If using deboned, cut up chicken, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook about 5 minutes. Turn chicken over and cook an additional 5 minutes. Chicken should be golden brown and cooked through. Remove from pan.
    3. 3
      In the pan in which the chicken cooked, over medium-high heat, add the onion, red pepper, jalapeno, and garlic. Add more oil if necessary. Saute, stirring, 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Do not let the onions brown.
    4. 4
      Stir in cumin, tomatoes, lemon juice, and beans. Add the browned chicken, mixing with the vegetables. Add the chicken broth and stir well. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Remove cover and cook 10 minutes more, or until chicken is tender.
    5. 5
      Serve beans and chicken spooned over individual servings of prepared brown rice with a green salad and tortilla chips.

      What a great, easy weeknight dish! I used 3 chicken breasts that I diced and browned on the stovetop (as suggested as an alternative). Served over rice and this was absolutely fabulous! Everyone ate it! Even the pickiest 3 year old and Dad too! Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. Made for ZWT5.

      This was a nice twist on black beans and rice. I liked the addition of the chicken. I did use chicken breasts, as I seldom buy a whole chicken. I served it with brown rice. Very nice flavor.

      Made a few changes ~ Used 4 large chicken breasts instead of the whole chicken, used 3 tablespoons of green chilies instead of the jalapeno pepper & used some homemade chicken broth! I served this GREAT TASTING DISH over a mix of brown & wild rice! WON-DER-FUL!! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
