This was something I can up with the other night for dinner. I was trying to think of an easy meal that would make me and Dan happy, since my carbs are low right now for the competition and his obviously aren’t. This is great because it gave me a great tasting piece of chicken (I was able to just pick it out and avoid all the beans) and it was enough for him to enjoy.
What you Need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pouch of chili powder
1 can kidney beans (or pintos)
½ medium onion, chopped
¼ cup sun dried tomatoes
½ cup mozzarella
What You Do With It:
Start off by sprinkling each chicken breast with 2 tsp of the chili powder and set them in a casserole dish.
Evenly pour in beans, onion, and the remainder of chile powder over the top of chicken, Finish off the dish by sprinkling over the cheese and finally, the sun dried tomatoes.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Remove foil and cook an additional 3-5 minutes to get cheese a bit toasted.
Serve over brown rice, a bed of spinach or by itself. This is packed with protein, complex carbs, fiber and taste!
