Chicken and Rice

Well, I had a BBQ Chicken Quesadillas recipe and was all set to go. 

Hmm. The meal sounded good when I printed it off a couple of weeks ago but tonight, it didn’t. So I messed around. 

Here’s the ingredient list from AllRecipes:

1 cup UNCLE BEN’S (R) Whole Grain Brown rice 

3 cups cooked and diced chicken breast

1 (15 ounce) can of kidney or red beans

1 cup BBQ sauce 

3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

Ok. You’re supposed to mix the rice, chicken, beans, cheese and BBQ sauce together, then use the mixture to make quesadillas. 

Here’s what I did:

I baked my chicken tenders, seasoned with Weber Kickin’ Chicken Seasoning. On one pound of tenders, I used a whole tablespoon and along with that, tossed the tenders in a tablespoon of olive oil. The chicken baked in about 30 minutes. 

I prepared the rice and shredded the chicken. I grabbed a can of pinto beans and made a side dish by refrying them!

When my teen and I sat down to eat, we had the refried beans in one bowl and the chicken/rice in another. From there we stuffed our tortillas and stuffed our faces. 

My teen stuffed his tortillas with all of the chicken, rice and beans. I am a purist and stuffed my tortillas with beans, eating my chicken and rice on my plate. 

I wish I had pictures. It seems as though my belly was telling me to eat and my blogger brain forgot to tell me to take pictures!
