Although I omitted the Jalapeno and Onion, it's still an awesome meal. Took me about 25 minutes to make.
Golden Chicken with Spicy Refried Beans
From EatingWell: February/March 2006
Kids love this combination of refried white beans and chicken tenders. If you're concerned about making it too spicy, omit the jalapeno. Serve with extra cheese to sprinkle on top.
8 Reviews for Golden Chicken with Spicy Refried Beans
My husband LOVES Mexican food, and was craving something spicy, Mexican, and tasty - but healthy and good for him. I saw this recipe & thought I'd give it a try. I added chili powder to the herbs for the chicken and threw a bit of cumin, coriander, and chili powder as well as some garlic into the beans. This ended up SO delicious! My husband LOVED it! The beans were absolutely delicious - creamy and flavorful with just a little spicy bite. Wonderful recipe! I used Great Northern Beans (organic vegetarian) for the beans & topped them with some extra sharp cheddar cheese. Highly recommend this - we will definately be having this again and again!! Oh, and the whole dinner took a total of 25 minutes flat from start to table; now THAT'S great!
The beans were fantastic. I will definitely make this again, however next time I'll make some adjustments. The chicken was a little bland for my tastes. Next time I think I'll use less coriander and more cumin, and maybe add some chili powder... Also, I omitted the jalepeno, so next time I may use the hot rotel tomatoes to give it more of a kick. Overall, I really liked it!
I really liked this, though I did omit the jalapeno pepper. I will make this again.
I'll never eat refried beans from a can again! This healthy and unbelievably easy bean dip is great with the golden chicken and has become a standard snack staple on its own. I have always loved refried beans but have been plagued by the guilt that goes along with it. Now, all I need is a couple cans of beans, a can of diced tomatoes, an onion, my immersion blender and 5 minutes and I have a guilt free dip that is great on whole wheat tortillas. Sometimes I use black beans, other times pinto or chili. Whatever I have on hand. It doesn't matter. It is great every time!
