  • 1 lb extra lean ground chicken

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced

  • 1 cup uncooked rice

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 1 (14.5 oz) jar salsa

  1. Spray a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the ground chicken and break it up a bit with a spoon. Add the diced onion and cook until the chicken has browned and the onion is translucent.

  2. Move the chicken and onion over to one side of the pan. Add in the uncooked rice and toss it around briefly to toast it.

  3. Stir in the spices, chicken broth, salsa, corn, and black beans. Bring the liquids to a simmer and then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 18 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid has absorbed.
