"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
6 (4-oz.) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-in. pieces
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
1 (15-oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/4 cups cups chicken stock or water
1 cup fresh corn kernels (3 ears), or frozen, thawed, and drained corn

6 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups), divided

Directions:
Step 1
Position oven rack 8 inches from heat source. Preheat oven to 375°F. Sprinkle chicken with pepper and 3/4 teaspoon of the salt. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add chicken; cook, stirring once, until well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. (Chicken will still be raw at this point.) Transfer chicken to an 8- x 8-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Step 2
Add rice to skillet; cook over medium-high, stirring often, until most of the rice turns white, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in beans, stock, corn, and 3/4 cup of the salsa; bring to a simmer over medium. Stir in 4 ounces of the cheese and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt. Transfer mixture to baking dish; stir to combine. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in preheated oven until rice is tender and chicken is done, about 45 minutes.
