IntroductionThis dish was inspired by a meal I had at Chili's. This dish was inspired by a meal I had at Chili's.
-1.25 lbs of thin chicken breast (5 breasts)
-1 c. Margaritaville margarita mix (discard after the chicken is marinaded)
-2 (15 oz) cans Goya black beans
-.5 teaspoon sugar
-1 teaspoon ground cumin

-2 packages Uncle Ben's Ready Jasmine Rice
-2 plum tomatos (diced)
-3 limes (.5 lime per serving)

I calculated the ingredients for 1 serving. This recipe makes 5 chicken breasts, about 5-6 servings of beans, and about 5-6 servings of rice. It was more accurate for me to calculate the nutritional information that goes on each plate, versus trying to divide up the entire meal into servings.
Beans- put all of the ingredients in a saucepan and mix thoroughly. Simmer for 10 minutes. I drained and rinsed the beans, and then added .5 c. water to the pan.
Rice- follow the directions on the package. The ready rice takes 90 seconds.
Put .5 c. beans on the plate, followed by .5 c of jasmine rice in the center. Squeeze a quarter of a lime over the rice and beans. Add a piece of chicken on top of the rice (I sliced mine up into strips). Top with half of a diced tomato and a pinch of cilantro. Squeeze another quarter of a lime over top of the chicken.
Serving Size: One serving is .5 c. of beans, .5 c. of rice, 1 chicken breast, and half of a diced tomato.
Number of Servings: 1
