How To Make Garlic Chicken With Black Beans
So it’s not just black beans, we also have green beans in here. BUT, turns out that would be a long title and Google won’t like me and hate me 4ever. Forever ever?
Here’s how to make this masterpiece.
- chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces (while keeping in mind to not bite off more than you can chew)
- rinse and drain the black beans and chop your vegetables
- heat a skillet and cook your chicken with some olive oil for a little bit
- add the onion
- then add in the spices and make sure to cover every single thing in the pan with them
- now add in the black beans and some more olive oil, then cover with a lid and cook for 4 -5 minutes or until the chicken is done.
- stir in the green beans and the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes
- serve immediately!
Yes, all that action takes place in one pan and within 15 minutes (approximately).
Now that you have this chicken with beans thing, you can eat it like this with some guacamole or this avocado dill sauce or…
Make A “Burrito”
Well, it’s more like a wrap. But you get the point.
- fill a tortilla with some chicken and beans
- make this avocado sauce or this yogurt sauce
- chop tomatoes and cucumber
- assemble it all together
- wrap and eat!
I really loved it like this! You can also serve it with rice or with salad or with both in a bowl!
Yes, this would also work for meal prep if you make some more of it. Maybe double the recipe? It was enough for me for two days. But, okay. I know I’m a super cool person (or is it lit now?) and I don’t want you to be jealous of me when I share the following amazing story.
So, as you know, my life’s pretty fabulous and filled with luxury, and so when I made this chicken in my pan made out of gold and diamonds, I allowed myself to eat it while sitting on my couch made out of pearls all alone watching Netflix Premium. #girlboss #selfcare #litselfcare #homealone
Yeah, totally not because I was exhausted and very unsocial (is that the right word?). I made this in 15 minutes and I ate it in like, 5.
But it was so delicious and it was delicious the next day too!
