Last night I’d planned to make my favorite Asian stir fry (using chicken breast) for dinner, which is a meal I make at least once per week.

Lisa, who was off from work yesterday, decided to make a big pot of black beans using an easy recipe she found on Food Network’s web site: Coconut Lime Black Beans. When the beans were ready, we both tried them and thought they were extremely tasty–especially considering how little effort went into them.

As I was eating my 20th spoonful of the beans (I couldn’t seem to stop), I said to Lisa, “How about instead of the stir fry I sauté some chicken breast and garlic in a little olive oil, toss that in with these beans and serve the chicken and beans over some rice?” She thought that sounded great, and so I that’s what I did.

Wow, it was awesome! Talk about easy, and super healthy, too. I did a pretty tough 69 kilometer/43 mile solo ride yesterday (my average heart rate was 172 BPM for 2 hours), and this dish was the perfect carb/protein recovery dinner after an effort like that.

I thought some fresh grilled pineapple would have went really well with this, so next time I’m going to try adding that.

Give this easy black bean recipe a try–I think you’ll really like it!
