  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 ½ - 3 pound meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)

  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil

  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes with onion and green pepper, undrained

  • 1 cup tomato juice

  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn

  • cup long grain rice

  • ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  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.
