Frango Assado. When I lived in São Paulo I used to eat this meal almost every night. It’s cheap, flavorful, and quite simple

INGREDIENTS ⁣
FOR THE CHICKEN⁣

10 (2.5lbs) chicken legs ⁣
Juice of one lime ⁣
2 tsp chili powder ⁣
2 tsp oregano ⁣
6 tsp cumin ⁣
1 tsp paprika ⁣
1 tsp salt ⁣

FOR THE BEANS⁣
2 cans (28oz) pinto beans ⁣
1/2 onion⁣
1 tbsp garlic ⁣
1/2 tbsp olive oil⁣
2/3 cup chicken broth⁣
2 tsp basil⁣
2 tsp paprika ⁣
Salt and pepper to taste ⁣

FOR THE RICE⁣

1/2 onion⁣
1 tbsp garlic ⁣
1/2 tbsp olive oil⁣
2 cups water ⁣
Salt and pepper to taste ⁣

FOR THE FAROFA ⁣
3 tbsp cornmeal ⁣
1/2 tbsp olive oil⁣
Salt and pepper to taste ⁣
2 tomatoes ⁣

PREP⁣
1. Mix all of the chicken spiced and lime juice in a bag. Add chicken. Marinate at least 1 hour. ⁣Bake at 400F for 20-22 min.
2. Dice onion and mince garlic. ⁣
3. Add oil to a pan and add 1/2 onion and 1 tbsp of garlic. Cook until onion is translucent. ⁣
4. Add dry rice and allow to brown a bit. Add water, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Cover for 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. ⁣
5. In another pan add oil and sauté other half of onion and 1 tbsp of garlic until translucent. Add in 1/4 of beans and mash.⁣
6. Pour in broth and remaining beans. Allow them to thicken and add the seasonings. ⁣
7. For the Farofa, add oil to a skillet and mix in cornmeal. Cook until it has toasted. Salt and pepper. ⁣
8. Makes 5 servings. Divide ingredients evenly. Nutrition information is for each serving. ⁣

❓What is Farofa?⁣
❗️It’s supposed to be made with cassava but I couldn’t find any. It’s used for flavor and texture. You can leave it out but it is very much a Brazilian trademark. ⁣

❓689 calories? That’s way too many. ⁣
❗️Yes it’s more than many of my other meals but it’s also still way less than what a lot of you are eating per meal. Your restaurant lunches are probably 700-1000 calories easily. Ideally the serving of rice and beans would be smaller but this was the easiest way to have round numbers and prevent waste. ⁣

❓Can I use chicken breast?⁣
❗️Obviously. Just make sure you score the meat up a bit so the marinade can penetrate it.
