Chicken and Black Bean Skillet with Brown Rice

Chicken and Black Bean Skillet with Brown Rice

Really clean tasting, yet very filling. If you have beans and rice prepped ahead of time, this dish comes together really quick.




Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in white part of the green onions, red pepper, and jalapeño (if using) and cook until tender, then, in the last few minutes of cooking add the garlic and handfuls of fresh spinach.

Stir in the chicken, beans, stock, and spinach and season with salt and pepper to taste. When well combined, add the rice, stir to combine. Bring mixture to a simmer and let all the ingredients get all happy together, for about 15 minutes.

Toss in the green parts of onions (no need to cook them down, they add a nice fresh note to the dish), serve in bowls. Top with a dollop of greek yogurt, some sliced avocado and a drizzle of lime juice.


*One cup of fresh spinach is about one big handful, no need to measure everything!

Feel free to omit the chicken if you are vegetarian, it’s still pretty darn yummy. Make it for your Meatless Monday!
