Chicken with Black Beans and Rice

Ingredients
1 1/2
teaspoons chili powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2
pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
2
tablespoons cooking oil
1
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1
14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes with onion and green pepper, undrained
1
cup tomato juice
1
cup frozen whole kernel corn
2/3
1/8
teaspoon cayenne pepper
2

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag combine flour, 1 teaspoon of the chili powder, the salt, and pepper. Add chicken pieces, half at a time. Seal bag; shake to coat.
  2. In a very large skillet brown chicken on all sides in hot oil over medium heat about 10 mintues, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside; discard drippings. Add beans, undrained tomatoes, tomato juice, corn, uncooked rice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, the cayenne pepper, and garlic to the skillet. Bring to boiling. Transfer rice mixture to a 13x9x2-inch baking dish or 3-quart rectangular casserole. Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice mixture.
  3. Bake, covered, in a 375 degrees F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F for breasts; 180 degrees F for thighs and drumsticks) and rice is tender. Makes 6 servings.
