4 large boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch chunks (about 15 ounces)
Salt and ground black pepper
½ tablespoon olive oil
3 ounces chicken and turkey andouille sausage (such as Applegate Farms), cut in to 1-inch slices
1 teaspoon adobo powder
¼ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1½ cups chopped yellow onions
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
⅔ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 packages (8 ounces each) Miracle Rice, rinsed, see note
½ cup canned black beans, drained
Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
In a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high, heat the oil. Once the oil has started to smoke, add the chicken. Brown the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes, turning the pieces once. Remove the chicken from pan and add the sausage, browning it for about 1 minute, turning the pieces once.
Add the adobo and chili powder and cook for 30 seconds. Add the onions, then reduce heat to medium-low and caramelize them slowly until soft and browned, about 6-8 minutes. Add the peppers and garlic and cook until soft, about another 2 minutes. Add the browned chicken, broth, Miracle Rice and black beans. Bring to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper and divide between 4 serving bowls.
