Chicken, Rice and Black Bean Bake Recipe

I love meals where you can just throw everything together and stick it in the oven! A few weeks back, I got a case of Hunt's tomato sauce, so I went to their website to get some inspiration for some new recipe ideas. They have a really good recipe selection and I will be using quite a few more recipes from there!! Mexican themed foods are some of my favorites, so this chicken and rice dish hit the spot for a great meal!

What you need:
1 1/2 c. basmati rice
1/2 green pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. green onions, sliced
1- 15 oz can tomato sauce
1- 14.5 oz can mexican style diced tomatoes
1- 15oz can black beans, rinsed
2 1/2 c. chicken broth
4-6 bone in, skin on chicken thighs or legs
2 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
olive oil
salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil. Combine rice, diced pepper, garlic, green onions, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, broth, salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder in the baking dish. stir together. Rub the chicken with additional cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper and place in baking dish on top of rice. Bake for 1 hour, stirring rice once or twice while cooking to combine flavors. Enjoy!!

  5. Thanks ladies, it turned out to be a great and easy dish to make! Hunts does have some really great recipes on their website, and we love diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, so it is a great place to find some great ideas. Love Mexican food too!! Happy New Year to both of you!!

  6. Um, I see black beans in the title and the pics but not in the recipe.

    1. Thanks so much for pointing that out! Just corrected it!

    2. I see black beans in the ingredients list but not the directions? I'm assuming you just mix them in with everything else?
