Delicious and healthy chicken dish for a family dinner.
Recipe type: main course,chicken
Serves: 4
  • one can of black beans
  • one can of corn
  • one large can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • sprinkle of cumin
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • oil for frying
  • cheese (I used Monterey jack)
  • Rice to serve it over.
  1. Combine all your canned ingredients in a large pot, add the spices and start heating it up. Taste the sauce and see if you like the spices as they are or want to add more, I cannot stand bland dishes so I use tablespoons of chili powder to give it some flavor and zing.
  2. Dice your chicken breasts into small pieces.
  3. Add some oil to a frying pan, throw in the onions, minced garlic cloves and the chicken breast. Sautee until the onions are tender and the chicken is browned.
  4. Add the chicken/onion combo into the pot with the tomatoes in it and simmer until the chicken is cooked completely.
  5. I serve ours on rice with a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top.
