DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • First, start your rice. Brown rice can take up to 45 minutes to cook sometimes (although I like the Uncle Ben's 10-minute brown rice). Time it accordingly so that the rice is finished by the time the main dish is finished.
  • Pour the salsa into the bottom of a 13" x 9" glass baking dish. You can add extra if you want salsa leftover to mix into the rice.
  • Fillet the chicken breasts. Lay them on top of the salsa.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and pour the black beans in the baking dish. Bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Take it out again and sprinkle the top with shredded cheese. Bake for another 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Dish out the chicken and black beans onto plates. Then, mix in the prepared rice into the dish with the leftover salsa and beans, and serve alongside the chicken. Enjoy!
