1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 chicken, halved (or boneless, skinless chicken breasts if desired)

For the pinto beans:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 whole Serrano chile
1/4 teaspoon Serrano chiles, ground
1 28 oz. can pinto beans
1/3 cup water

For the Spanish Rice:
1 14 1/2 oz. can stewed tomatoes

For the Spanish rice:

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 25 min. or until rice is tender. Garnish with green onions.

For the chicken:

Combine oil, butter, onion powder, garlic powder, food coloring, cumin and lemon juice in large shallow pan. Add chicken halves (or boneless chicken breasts), turning to coat well. Cover and marinate overnight. Remove chicken from marinade and cook on grill over medium coals until browned on both sides and meat is done, browning and basting frequently, about 25 minutes.
