1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 cup chopped green sweet pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup tomato juice
1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
2/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1.  Skin chicken; set aside.
2.  In a large saucepan cook onion, sweet pepper, and garlic in hot oil until vegetables are tender.  Stir in black beans, undrained tomatoes, tomato juice, corn, uncooked rice, chili powder, red pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Bring to boiling.  Transfer rice mixture to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish.  Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice mixture.  Sprinkle chicken with paprika.
