This is a lovely quick and very tasty dinner. I love the ‘throw it all in’ dishes and this is one of those. The simple spice mix makes it deliciously smoky and spicy and uses basic store cupboard ingredients. I used black eyed beans as I really like them but you can use any canned beans red kidney beans would be good too.
I’m not much of a one for very spicy dishes so didn’t use a lot of chili but of course as always if you like it hotter adjust the amount of chili you use and if you are a complete wuss about heat leave it out altogether but please use the smoked paprika it makes all the difference.
Ingredients of Mexican Chicken:
4 chicken breasts (trimmed of all fat)
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 large onion (sliced)
2 cans of black eye beans (drained)
Ingredients of Spice Mix:
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chili powder (mild or hot)
1 tsp garlic granules
Mix the spices together in a small bowl to make the spice mix and set aside.
Place the onion, beans and tomatoes in a casserole dish and sprinkle on half of the spice mix and mix together well.
Place the chicken breasts on top of the onion, beans and tomatoes and sprinkle over the rest of the spice mix.
Bake in the oven on Gas 5/ 190/375 for 30 minutes .I served it with rice and broccoli.
