BBQ Chicken Breasts with Rice and Beans

These tangy and sweet chicken breasts make for a quick and delicious meal. We poach the chicken directly in the barbecue sauce to infuse them with flavor and serve them with a side of  rice and beans. We cook the rice and beans separately in the Suvie and then stir them together just before serving. Garnish this dish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a shower of cilantro for a satisfying and flavor-packed meal. Note that although there is no set time for the vegetables, the beans will receive residual heat from the protein zone, thereby cooking at 160°F degrees.

Note: If you would like, add 1-2 tsps homemade BBQ Seasoning to add even more flavor to this delicious meal.
