A Southern Staple
Over medium heat in heavy 4-quart pot with cover, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Saute chicken, turning frequently, until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
Add remaining tablespoon of oil to casserole dish. Mix in onion and garlic; saute for 3 minutes, or until translucent. Stir in rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken broth, roasted peppers, tomatoes with juice, black beans, corn and salt. Bring to simmer; add chicken back to casserole. Cover and reduce heat to low; cook for 20 minutes. Turn chicken and cook for another 20 minutes, or until juices run clear when thigh is pierced with tip of sharp knife and rice is tender. Add cilantro; transfer to serving dish and garnish with sour cream, cilantro sprigs and avocado slices. Serve immediately.
In medium bowl or spice bag, mix together all ingredients. Add chicken and rub spices into all sides of chicken. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for least 1 hour.

KarenMarie72 5y agoDELICIOUS!! this came out GREAT! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, calrose rice instead of long grain and frozen roasted corn instead of canned...I also roasted my own red bell pepper because I don't like the canned (or salt that is in canned). I took the pan off the heat before all the liquid had absorbed into the rice and the casserole thickened beautifully as it sat. The only thing better than this dish off the stove will be leftovers!! love it, love it, love it!
BeneathArthursSeat 6y agoThis was a nice change of pace, and I loved the baby corn in it. Here are my notes if they'll help anyone else out. Rice: Make sure your rice will actually cook all the way through in the forty minutes it has to cook. Otherwise the dish may burn while you wait for it to finish cooking. Spice rub: For 8 chicken breasts you need almost twice what the spice rub recipe makes. It's really tasty and very aromatic, so give it a try. Question for the original author: You wrote '1 -ounce can plum tomatoes chopped' Does this mean 12 ounce can? Or 16 ounces?
