I tried this recipe for my friend and I.We were very short on time and wanted something fast and that was delicious. we had most of the ingredients at home so we decided on this recipe. She loved it and so did I. very very easy.It is now a favorite and I am planning on doing it for my family. You must try :)

I loved how this dish incorporated chicken, rice and beans. Although as a Latina, I cook these ingredients often, the cans of diced tomatoes with roasted garlic and reheated beans gave this dish a distinct taste. My family loved this and it is now a family favorite! Even better you can double the recipe, freeze it and reheat it later on during the week!
