Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Core and slice the red peppers. Chop the cilantro. Strain and rinse the beans. Cut the lime in half. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces.


Cook the rice: Combine the rice with 4 2/3 cups salted water in a medium pot and bring it to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cover with a lid and simmer until the rice is tender, 23-25 min. (Drain any remaining excess liquid.)
