  • 1 pounds - boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons - olive oil
  • 1/4 cups - diced yellow onion
  • 1 cups - uncooked extra-long grain rice
  • 1 cans - 14.5 oz diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cans - 15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoons - garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons - chili powder
  • 1 teaspoons - cumin
  • 2 1/2 cups - low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups - colby jack, monterey jack or cheddar cheese, shredded
  • - kosher salt and pepper
  • Garnishes - optional
  • - freshly diced tomatoes
  • - diced green onions
  • - sour cream
  • - guacamole
  • - tortillas, for serving
  • Directions:

    Sauté onions in 2 tablespoon of olive oil until they start to soften.

    Season diced chicken with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Add chicken to pan and cook over medium high heat until chicken has started to brown.

    Move chicken to one side of the pan; in the other side of the pan add another tablespoon of olive oil and sauté uncooked rice for about 2 minutes or just until some of the grains start to lightly brown.

    Stir in black beans, canned tomatoes, chicken broth, garlic powder, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low.

    Cook about 20 minutes or until rice is tender.

    Season with additional salt and pepper as needed. Sprinkle with cheese, cover with lid, remove from heat and let sit for 2-3 minutes to melt cheese.

    Garnish with fresh tomatoes, green onions, sour cream and guacamole, as desired.

    Other variations:
    Try cooking diced bell peppers or jalapenos along with onions.
    Add frozen corn in the last few minutes of cooking.
    Use ground beef or turkey in place of chicken.
    Leave out the cheese for a lighter version.
