Making your own rice is a great option if you are watching your sodium. Tomatoes, spices and veggies is all it takes to make this easy, healthy recipe.

Directions
1. 
Heat oven to 450 degree F. Coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. 
Cook rice following package directions, about 25 minutes, replacing water with the broth and adding 1 teaspoon of the jerk seasoning. Gently stir in kidney beans during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
3. 
Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces and toss with remaining 3 teaspoons of jerk seasoning. Place in prepared pan and bake at 450 degree F for 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degree F on an instant-read thermometer, turning once halfway through.
4. 
Serve the chicken with the rice and beans on the side.
