Southwestern Style Beans and Rice With Chicken

Recipe by kitty.rock
READY IN: 40mins




  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve beans and chicken spooned over individual servings of prepared brown rice with a green salad and tortilla chips.
