Fiesta Bake--One Pan




The original author says:  Not only do I love to make easy meals but I love it even more when there is minimal mess. Can I get a high five on that one? One pan dishes are the absolute best because they taste great but don’t have a sink full of dishes to wash. Today’s recipe is just that-

It’s ooey, gooey and cheesy good. I make a similar one with ground beef but found this recipe on the back of a package and knew that we had to test it out. Some of my favorite recipes have come from the back of packages. What about you?

Heat oil in medium sauce pan. Add chicken and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Stir in the rest of ingredients (minus the cheese and optional sour cream). Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. Top with shredded cheese and let melt for a couple of minutes. Serve topped with sour cream (optional).

Ingredients
1 tbsp oil (I used canola)
3-4 boneless chicken breasts
3/4 c. rice, uncooked
2 c. water
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 c. whole kernel corn
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (I used Mexican mix)
sour cream (optional)

Instructions
Heat oil in medium sauce pan.
Add chicken and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Stir in the rest of ingredients (minus the cheese and optional sour cream).

Top with shredded cheese and let melt for a couple of minutes.
Serve topped with sour cream (optional).

These could easily be made into soft tacos or burritos. Make as directed and then fill a tortilla with the ingredients. Yum!
