Southwestern Chicken and Rice

  1. Southwestern Chicken and Rice


    Seen a couple other recipes like this, and I'm not really sure if this is the correct name for the recipe, but this is what I've always called it.

    Ingredients:
    1/2-1 cup of whole grain rice
    1.5-2 lbs of chicken grilled or steamed
    1 can of Rotel (or you can mix in the tomato, celery, onion, and whatever else you like yourself)
    1/2 can of corn
    1/4-1/2 jar of chunky hot sauce
    1/2 can of black beans

    1. Start cooking the rice according to the instructions with it. Do this first since any more than 1 serving of rice can take a while.
    2. Cook the chicken. Cut it up into little bite sized pieces.
    3. Heat up the corn and black beans in the microwave.
    4. Bring it all together in a decent sized container. I usually just use what I cooked the rice in.
    5. If your diet permits such, you can add a little bit of cheese to top it off.

    This will keep for a decent amount of time and it's pretty easy to cook in large quantities. It's also a good tasting meal with a ton of fiber and protein, depending on how you mix the portions of course.

    **Edit: I saw that I had some measurements and directions off when this got bumped. Fixed them**


  2. nice, i like the way this one sounds. any way you can make chicken and rice less boring is a winner

  3. I am going to cook this one up tomorrow!
