3chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into 1" pieces, seasoned to taste with kosher salt and pepper
1cupuncooked basmati rice
15oz.can black beans, drained and rinsed
10oz.can diced tomatoes and green chilies, with juice
1cupshredded cheddar cheese
halved grape tomatoes, sliced black olives, salsa, shredded cheese, sliced scallions, as garnish
In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbs. olive oil over medium-high heat; add the chili powder, cumin, granulated onion, and granulated garlic, along with the chicken to the skillet, cooking just until the chicken is golden brown on both sides, 1-2 minutes; remove chicken from skillet and reserve.
In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat; add the rice and sauté for one minute, stirring often.
Stir in the beans, tomatoes and green chilies, and broth; bring to a boil. Place the reserved chicken on top, but DO NOT stir it into the rice mixture.
Reduce the heat to medium-low; cover the skillet, letting the contents simmer, covered, until rice is tender and chicken is fully cooked throughout, about 20 minutes. If more liquid is needed throughout this process, add extra chicken broth as you go.
Remove the skillet from the heat and uncover. Sprinkle with cheese and cover the skillet once more, for just a couple minutes until the cheese melts.
