Food Friday: Southwestern Chicken & Rice

I'm starting a new regular feature - Food Friday. Each Friday, I will post a new recipe from my file of tried and true recipes. Most of my recipes are super easy and cheap. This week's recipe was a favorite before we had our son. Unfortunately, our son is allergic to rice so I can no longer make it unless he is at his grandparents for the evening.

Southwestern Chicken & Rice

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup chunky salsa
1 package taco seasoning
2 cups water
2 cups instant rice
1 cup black beans (drained)
2 cups Mexican style shredded cheese (I use whatever I have)

Boil chicken in salsa, taco seasoning and water, cover. Simmer 10 minutes and then return to a boil. Stir in uncooked rice and black beans. Sprinkle with cheese, cover, and cook on low for 5 minutes.
