A few nights ago, Matt and I made a super simple (but delicious) dinner that I thought was worth sharing. Want to know how to make chicken, rice, and veggies more interesting? Add black beans!
Maybe it’s just me, but for some reason the addition of black beans makes the meal so much more delicious. Try it and let me know what you think! Reminds me of all the yummy chicken, rice, and beans that we had on our honeymoon a few years ago. 🙂
We had some leftovers from that dinner so I turned it into an easy packed lunch for work today, along with the addition of some other leftovers from our homemade weekend brunch – sweet potatoes, peppers, and mushrooms!
I had a feeling the leftovers would taste good together so I dumped them all into one container. Easier transport. 🙂
Looking forward to eating it shortly! Nice mix of carbs (a little brown rice + sweet potatoes), protein (chicken + black beans), and lots of veggies (asparagus + peppers + mushrooms).
I also packed a bunch of snacks to enjoy throughout the week – a big bag of roasted chickpeas, a KIND bar, a new Kashi bar (delicious – free sample), an almond butter Perfect Bar (obsessed), and an orange I picked myself in the orange groves in Florida. 🙂
