Ingredients

    Marinade:

    Juice of 4 limes (about 8 Tbsp.)
    4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder)
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1 tsp. Sriracha hot sauce
    1/2 tsp. salt
    Dash of sugar or honey

    Other:

    1 1/2 to 2 lbs. chicken, boned and skinned and cut into small pieces
    1 Tbsp. olive oil
    1/2 onion, diced
    2 cans diced tomatoes with jalapenos, undrained
    1 can black beans, drained
    1 can corn, drained

Tips

Adding cilantro to the marinade is optional.


Directions

1. Whisk together all of the marinade ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Place chicken in a gallon-sized zipper-lock bag and pour the marinade over it. Squish it around and put it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
2. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add onions and cook until they are softened. Add chicken and HALF of the marinade. DISCARD the rest of the marinade. Cook the chicken, stirring, for just a few minutes.
3. Add tomatoes, corn and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Serve over rice.
