My Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet makes the perfect quick and simple weeknight dinner!

Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet

I am always looking for quick and simple weeknight dinners and this one I developed last week was a huge success.  We love Mexican dinners every week and this was a great addition to add to my rotating menu options.

You can use a rotisserie chicken to save yourself some time, or if you have time I highly suggest grilling up my Taco Lime Chicken.  We used it for this recipe and it was the perfect addition with the spices in the rice.

Break out your cast iron skillet and try out this zesty chicken and rice skillet this week!

Enjoy friends!

    This recipe looks so yummy. I am always interested in your skillet recipes, but I don’t have a cast iron skillet that can go in the oven. I was interested in buying one for my birthday and wondered what size you recommend. Do you have a favorite?

    Awesome! I’m trying to make weekly recipe planning easier for our family, and have decided to do five ‘theme’ nights each week…one night Italian, one night American, one night Mexican, one night slow cooker and one night just an easy classic (grilled cheese, breakfast, ect.). This will be perfect for Mexican night!!

  26. 26

    God bless you for the weeknights-dinner-friendly ideas! Just like Natalie, I am trying to plan ahead all the cooking (and shopping groceries for that matter). It is part of a bigger project for me – my new year resolution for time management.

    Amanda says:

    I was pretty much sold on this when I saw it’s mexican themed AND chicken. Two of my favorite things.

    This may be a stupid question, but can you use just a regular oven-safe skillet if you don’t have a cast iron one? Thanks!

    Mary says:

    Hi, This was so good… I tried it once with ground beef, that was good and now I like it with sausage… thanks

  34. 34

    Love this recipe. Not only does it look good, it looks easy enough to create. I am all about easy recipes, especially when its my turn to cook (my husband does 90% of the cooking) and every once in a while I have to cook and that’s when I go online to find something new to create.

    Thanks so much for inspiring me to make this one pan chicken dish!
