One-Skillet Savory Ranch Chicken
- Prep: 10 min
- Cook: 20 min
- Total: 30 min
- Servings: 6
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 jar (16 ounces) chunky salsa
2 cups instant rice
2 cups water or chicken stock
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a medium bowl, toss the chicken and seasoning mix together until well-coated.
Warm the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; when hot, add the chicken and cook until browned and cooked through (165°F).
Stir in the beans, salsa, rice, and water to the chicken; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 10 minutes, or until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff and serve hot. (For a bit of freshness and added spice, garnish with fresh cilantro and diced jalapeño.)
