Low-Point Chicken Patty with Black Beans

Yum
I never realized how many people simply hate to cook until one of my friends told me they don't want to make anything on my blog because there's too many ingredients. Until now I had always assumed three or four ingredients (like in some of my recipes) made cooking pretty darn easy. So this is for all of you who can associate with my friend. You don't need to make everything from scratch for it to be delicious! :)


Low-Point Chicken Patty with Black Beans
Ingredients:
- 1, Boca Original Chik'n Meatless Patty (in your grocery store's freezer section)
- 1 can of Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles)
- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- Pinch of reduced-fat or fat-free mozzarella cheese (it doesn't even have to be low-fat if you're truly doing just a pinch!)
- Pam cooking spray with olive oil
Spray skillet with Pam cooking spray. Place chicken patty in skillet and cook on both sides for approximately 10 to 12 minutes total. Open can of Rotel and black beans. After you rinse the beans, mix the two together and heat up the mixture. Remove chicken patty and spoon black-bean mixture on top. Add a pinch of shredded cheese. Grill, saute', or heat some of your favorite fresh vegetables for your side dish. Supper's ready! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
