Fiesta Chicken and Rice

Fiesta Chicken and Rice


2 cups broth
1 can diced tomatoes
½ tsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin (divided)
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 ½ cups brown rice
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained
½ cup salsa
1 chicken breast, bite-size pieces

Bring broth through rice to boil (using only 1 tsp cumin), then simmer on low for 40 minutes.

Heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add corn and cumin and sauté 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook until chicken is done.

Serve chicken mixture on rice.

***This recipe is also AWESOME made with ground beef. Double the spices, then mix the rice in once the beef is cooked.
