Caribbean Chicken and Black Beans
42 mins (prep 12, cooking 30)
17 ingredients
6 servings
Originally from Shape magazine and adapted to suit my tastes and simplify the preparation. This is healthy and comforting with a pleasing, but approachable combination of spices that even picky eaters will enjoy. Though full of flavor this is not spicy hot, so feel free to adjust to your own tastes. A word of caution, this makes 6 perfect portions for my weight watching lifestyle but if you have hungry eaters at your table, it may only serve 4 or 5.
