This dish is perfect for a busy weeknight. It’s super quick, light & full of flavor. Take a gander this way…

Chicken with black bean tomato salsa

  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut in cubes
  • 1 can no salt added black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can no salt added diced tomatoes, slightly drained
  • brown rice
  • shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 T dried oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste

First begin cooking the brown rice according to the instructions on the package. (this usually takes around 35-40 minutes)

Start off by heating a pan with a little oil. Once heated add the chicken & cook until no longer pink. Add the oregano & salt & pepper to taste. Next add the black beans on top of the chicken, then the tomatoes. Next add the cheese and finally the fresh cilantro. Turn heat down to low & cook until heated through & cheese begins to melt.

*I always try to buy canned goods with ‘no salt added’. I like to be in control of the salt & all spices for that matter in my food. This way you can add the salt gradually to your taste instead of relying of the factory people for your flavor* Just a thought…

It’s so pretty, don’t cha think?
