How to Make a Spanish Rice

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.

Heat oven to 450 degree F. Coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
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.
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.
Serve the chicken with the rice and beans on the side.
