Coconut Mango Chicken

I made this meal for the fam when my parents when they were in Dallas. My boyfriend, Stephen, joined us for dinner also. Everybody loved this meal, especially Stephen and my nephew, Luke. I think left alone, the two of them could have eaten all of it. But they were nice enough to leave some for the rest of us.

4 chicken breasts, cubed
Salt and pepper
1 t. ground coriander
1/2 onion, diced
2 ripe mangos, cubed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can coconut milk
2 c. instant brown rice

In medium pot, bring 1 cup of coconut milk plus 1 cup of water to a boil. Stir in brown rice and season with salt. Cover pot, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, turn off heat and let stand for another 5 minutes. In large skillet, saute onions for 4-5 minutes, until translucent. Season chicken with salt, pepper and coriander. Add chicken to skillet and cook for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Add the rest of the coconut milk to the skillet and let simmer for 3-4 minutes. Stir in mango and black beans.
