Review: "Zest and aroma! and Easy Freeze." In a large pot, combine the oil, onions, celery and red and/or green peppers. Cook over high heat, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables soften. If needed, add a little water to prevent burning.
Stir in the broth, water, bay leaves, chili powder, curry powder, thyme, allspice and black pepper. Add the chicken and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside until cool enough to handle.
Stir the rice and beans into the pot. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the rice is just tender.
Remove chicken from bones and cut into bite-size pieces. Add to the pot and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaves.
