Personal Review: I’ve been trying to try new recipes at least 1-2 times a week. This is a new one that I made last week. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture for this post. I was surprised at how moist the chicken was. And the amount of spice was just perfect in my opinion. Actually I almost added a little more chili powder just because we like spicy things. I didn’t use chicken breast halves, I used hi chicken breasts so it took longer for me to get the chicken cooked through. I think next time I will cut the chicken breasts in half just for ease of cooking. The bean mixture was very easy and quite good. Beans aren’t my normal thing, but I did eat a little bit of it. I served this dish with steamed Brussels sprouts. Definitely an easy meal to make and scrumptious too! Highly recommended.
