Magpie’s Southwest Chicken

This is a fast, easy, incredibly healthy supper and one of my old reliable recipes.  The best part is that there are usually leftovers which happen to make an awesome quesadilla filling for supper the day after, another super easy meal.

Ingredients Needed:

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.

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.

Dice your chicken breasts into small pieces, mine are larger so my son-who-thinks-he’s-vegetarian-but-eats-chicken-nuggets can pick out the chicken. Yes, we’ve talked about what’s in chicken nuggets. Still can’t get through to him.

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.

Add the chicken/onion combo into the pot with the tomatoes in it and simmer until the chicken is cooked completely.

I serve ours on rice with a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top.
