Everything cooks in the same pan so cleanup is a breeze! I love recipes that are easy to make and easy to clean up.

This has all of the flavors of a delicious burrito (minus the tortilla) – chicken, rice, tomatoes, seasonings and cheese. It’s a healthy and filling dinner.

Here’s what you need to make the Chicken Burrito Skillet:

  • 1 lb. chicken breast
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Long grain rice
  • Petite diced tomatoes
  • Black beans
  • Cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt and pepper
  • Chicken broth
  • Reduced fat Mexican cheese, shredded

To start I cut the chicken into bite size pieces then seasoned with salt and pepper. I sprayed my pan with olive oil spray and cooked the chicken until it was no longer pink.

I pushed the chicken to one side of the pan then added the onion and garlic.

Next I added the rice to the pan. Then I put in the cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt and give it a good stir.

Add in the petite diced tomatoes, chicken broth and black beans. Stir everything together and bring it to a boil.

Once it comes to a boil reduce the heat to a simmer and cover with a lid. Cook 20-25 minutes stirring occasionally.

When the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked through you want to add the cheese. Cover again with the lid until the cheese is melted.

If you don’t like black beans you could always swap them out for corn.

You can top it with onions, tomatoes, cilantro or sour cream. They all taste delicious with this Chicken Burrito Skillet.
