This was one of the weirdest tasting things I've ever cooked. The black beans and pineapple definitely did not go together and the marmalade did little to make them compatible. I live in Florida and have cooked and eaten Cuban food many times and I can't see a bit of authenticity in this recipe. One of the very few times I have pitched a Cooking Light recipe after trying it. Very disappointing.
Super tasty! Used canned pineapple and it was great.
We enjoy this quick and easy recipe. We use canned pineapple for this recipe. To give the dish more flavor, we cook the rice in the pineapple juice instead of water.
A great quick recipe. We like spicy food, so we increased the cayenne. There was no marmalade on hand, so we substituted hot pepper jelly. We used frozen pineapple, so we simmered it with the vinegar, cayenne, and jelly for a bit before adding the beans and then warming it through. Next time we might macerate some of the beans before adding to the sauce to make it more cohesive. A generous sprinkling of lime juice over the final product added brightness. We served the dish with leftover brown rice, reheated with the addition of tomatillo salsa and olive oil. Enjoy!
Very quick to put together and quite tasty for the amount of effort put into it. Served with carrot rice, CL's spiced marinated tomatoes, balsamic strawberries and white wine. Probably wouldn't serve this as a company meal, but I'll definitely be making again as it's a solid everyday dish.
Quick and easy. I marinated the chicken with the spices, lime, and olive oil for three minutes before grilling. Served with yellow rice. Will make again.
This recipe was fabulous. The seasoning on the chicken really brought out the flavors of the bean mixture. I was surprised to find such a great tasting dish that takes very little time to make.
Super easy weeknight meal. I like to use bite size pieces of chicken instead of the whole breast and add a little bit of cumin along with the other spices. Delicious!
Easy to fix and has great flavor. Already fixed several times since recipe was found 1 month ago.
