  1. In a pot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the chicken strips 10 minutes, or until browned and juices run clear.
  3. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, mix the black beans, diced tomatoes, green beans, Creole seasoning, and chili powder. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
  4. Mix the chicken into the bean and tomato mixture, and continue cooking 5 minutes. Serve over the rice.

This recipe was very good. I was a little doubtful when I put in the green beans, but they tasted great. Corn would work too. My husband and I both liked it.

Nothing really spectacular with this one. Pretty simple and quick and easy to make, but not a staple in our kitchen. Could taste better if I had used fresh tomatoes, fresh green beans and maybe some white wine?? That would maybe eliminate some of the canned taste the dish had.

Easy & quick. Added corn for color and used brown rice.

Delicious! Used a recipe from this site for Creole Seasoning Blend. Used fresh green beans because I had some on hand. Subbed a vegetarian chicken substitute. Turned out very tasty and the picky eater I served it to liked it.

I must admit I wasn't sure when I read this, but it turned out great and my boyfriend loved it too! I didn't add the beans cause he doesn't like them, but I added corn as one reviewer suggested. I didn't have creole seasoning or whatever so I used carribean jerk spice. I was filling and tastey! Next time I am going to try it with some sort of pasta instead of rice. It also lead me to my own ideas for other meals similar.

This one really surprised me. I wasn't so sure I would care for it, but it was very good! My kids enjoyed it also. I used french style canned green beans. I poured the tomato/bean mixture over the sauteed chicken in the skillet and let it all simmer together for a few minutes. I will make this again-definitely.

Some more tips: Creole and Cajun seasoning are the same thing, I believe. I use a brand called Tony's which is great on lots of things. I like to sprinkle about half the chili powder directly on the chicken as I'm browning it. You can experiment with the veggies. I use frozen green beans. I also like to add a can of mushrooms and about 6oz. frozen spinach, but that's not for everyone. Finally, for anyone doing South Beach, this is Phase 1 friendly if you omit the rice. For Phase 2, use brown or wild rice.
