This dinner was so delicious! Light and crisp and full of flavor. This is a healthy dinner that has so much going on your family will clean their plates. This meal is the perfect way to add a bit of spice and fresh flavor to a cold winter day!
1 cup chopped peeled Granny Smith apple 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, divided 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion, divided 2 limes 1-2 tablespoons olive oil 3 garlic cloves, finely minced 1 teaspoon chili powder 3/4 teaspoons coriander 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1 13.5 ounce can chicken broth 2 15-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 cups cooked brown or white rice (we love instant brown rice) 4 grilled chicken breasts 4-6 lime wedges
1. Combine apple, cilantro, 2 tablespoons onion, and the juice from half a lime. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and black pepper. Set aside.
2. Next, combine the remaining onion and oil in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until completely softened, 6-7 minutes. Add garlic and next 3 ingredients; stir constantly for 2 minutes. Stir in broth and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and using the back of a spoon mash some of the beans and stir often, until sauce is thickened, 8-10 minutes (or longer if needed). Season with salt and pepper to taste and a big squeeze of lime juice. Divide rice and beans among plates. Top with some chicken and apple salsa. Garnish with additional cilantro and lime wedges.
This is a wonderful meal just as it is but you could add a fruit salad or warm tortillas on the side to really send it over the top! Yum!!
