Cooking Time25 min

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rice
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • 1 can tomatoes with green chilies
  • Salsa or hot sauce, to taste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lime juice
  • 1 1/2 pound chicken
  • Sour cream, cheese, cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Slice up chicken into little pieces put in a plastic Ziploc bag. Season chicken with cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. I just sprinkled some on the pieces, not really measuring. Mix it all together in the bag.

  2. Put some olive oil in pan and sear the chicken. Squeeze lime over chicken. Cover and reduce heat until chicken is cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Put more oil in pan and put in rice, garlic and onions. Stir everything and let the rice brown. Stir occasionally so rice does not burn, but gets a very light brown color.

  4. Add chicken broth and all of the spices. Mix.

  5. Add in the tomatoes, corn and black beans. I usually add a splash of my favorite hot sauce to give it a little kick. Add in the chicken.

  6. Mix and let it boil. Once it starts to bubble, reduce heat to low and cover and cook for 15 minutes.

  7. When done garnish with sour cream, cheese and cilantro.
