Ingredients

    -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
    -.5 teaspoon chili powder
    -.5 teaspoon garlic powder

    -2 packages Uncle Ben's Ready Jasmine Rice

    -2 plum tomatos (diced)
    -3 limes (.5 lime per serving)
    -pinch of cilantro to sprinkle on top of the chicken at the end

Tips

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.


Directions

Chicken- put the mix in a bag with the chicken and let it marinade for at least 2 hours. Discard the leftover marinade and grill until no longer pink. I put some pepper on the chicken while it was grilling.

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
