Make Do and Make Lovely Monday - Easy Southwest Chicken Dinner

Dinner on Monday night can be one of those maddening things for us.
Every now and then I have these great intentions on Sunday to have a healthy, yummy meal plan for the whole week, but then Monday comes along and lays me out flat.
Going back to work and school on Monday's is always such a shock to my system, despite it's regular appearance.
And it is so easy to throw my very yummy, but somewhat complicated, dinner plan out the window.
In those instances I am grateful for the few almost-one-pot wonders from our stock pantry items.

Here is a recent addition:
Easy Southwest Chicken Dinner

Spray a casserole dish with olive oil spray, then line the dish with about a dozen raw chicken boneless-skinless breast tenders.

Aside: Why are people eeked out by raw chicken? It's just chicken!  
Of course there have been recently alive-but-now-raw chickens in my sink, so there is that.

Next, cover the chicken with the following ingredients:
1 can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can diced tomatoes with green chili's
1 can diced Italian seasoned tomatoes
3 Tbsp of Sour Cream

Bake at  400 degrees for 20 minutes - make sure the mixture is bubbling and chicken is cooked through before serving.

Meanwhile bowl up some Penne or Bowtie Pasta or maybe even some white rice.

Serve over past or rice and top with cheese and sour cream. 
This is a simple, easy, yummy dish that is easy to make from items you must likely keep in your cupboards already.


I am home from Christianity 21 and I had an absolutely amazing time, went total fan girl on several occasions and made friends for life.  I am going to be posting some great giveaway's from the event, a link to my presentation and much more throughout this week!
And make sure to come back tomorrow for the Dyson Hand-Held Vac winner!

Hope you all had lovely weekends as well.
Much love


  1. Do you think I could leave out the sour cream before baking? I'm lactose intolerant, but it looks really yummy and I want to eat it!

  2. Absolutely! The sour cream is just to add a touch of creaminess!

  3. Awesome! I'm adding this to our menu for next week!

  4. My entry tonyour giveaway says I commented, but I did not - I could not get the comments tomload! Just did not want you to think Imam a fibber!
