If you are like me, I can never figure out what to get my Dad for Father’s Day. I have found that he likes something as simple as a homemade dinner and a card.
Every year I ask him what he would like me to make for his special day. And every year he always asks me to make the same thing. This year I am spoiling him by making it early so I can share it with you; I doubt he will complain.
I start by cooking ½ cup of brown rice. While the brown rice is boiling, I coat my large skillet with cooking spray.
Next I cut 8 ounces of chicken breast; I like to cut it lengthwise. I place the chicken in the skillet and turn the stove on to medium-high. I let the chicken cook until it is lightly browned.
With the chicken cooking, I chop ½ of an onion. When the chicken is lightly browned, I add the chopped onion to the skillet.
I cook the chicken and the onions for an additional 2 minutes. Then I add 14.5 ounces of canned diced plum tomatoes and 8 ounces of reduced sodium, canned red kidney beans to the skillet.
Finally I lightly sprinkle chili powder and black pepper on it. I bring the ingredients to a boil and then cover the skillet. I let it simmer for 20 minutes. I remove the skillet from the stove and combine it with ½ cup of brown rice and serve.

I rinse and drain the kidney beans prior to adding them to the skillet. You could also serve this dish with a side of vegetables.
