a little southwest cuisine

I tried this new recipe last week and I am in LOVE.  Fresh lime and cilantro plus your favorite salsa, some seasoned chicken and black beans....seriously, YUM.

1 pkg. taco seasoning                                1/4 c. water    
4 chicken breasts                                       1 T. cilantro, chopped
2 T. oil                                                       1 T. lime juice (fresh)
1 c. your favorite salsa                               1 (15-oz.) can black beans,
1/4 c. apricot jam                                        rinsed & drained

Cilantro Sour Cream:
1/2 c. sour cream                                        3 T. cilantro, chopped
1 tsp. lime zest                                            2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 T. lime juice                                             1/4 tsp. salt

Cut chicken breasts into bite-size pieces.  In large skillet heat oil; add chicken and taco seasoning.  Cook until juices run clear.  Add salsa, apricot jam, water, cilantro and lime juice.  Bring to a boil.  Stir in beans, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.  In a small bowl combine sour cream, lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, chopped plum tomatoes, and salt.  Serve chicken over rice.  Top with sour cream.
