LET’S BEGIN!

First, we need to bake our chicken. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), then season your chicken breasts and drizzle some olive or vegetable oil on them too. After a thorough seasoning and oiling, you can now place your chicken inside the oven to cook! Cook time for the chicken is somewhere between 25 – 30 minutes. ALSO: flip your chicken breasts once after 10 minutes to ensure even cooking.

While the chicken is in the oven, you can now begin cooking the beans and corn.

1.) Gather ingredients

2.) Slice, mince and prepare your onions, garlic, and peppers

3.) Sautee garlic and onions

4.) Add peppers and cook until tender

5.) Add your seasoning – paprika + garlic and peppers + salt

6.) Add kidney beans and INCLUDE about 1/3 cup of the bean’s liquid flavor

7.) Cook for 5 minutes until beans are soft but still firm

8.) Add corn, DRAIN ALL THE LIQUID out from the can. Just add the corn, NO LIQUIDS!

9.) Cook for another 10 minutes

10.) Let it cool before placing the prepped meal in your containers

Hopefully, your end product turns out to look like this. Give this recipe a try and let me know if you liked it !!!

With love,

Mary Dezleigh Teodosio.
