My boyfriend loves any spicy food. But this is one quick-fix and low-fat recipe we can both enjoy. While the chicken cooks, put together individual salads of packaged shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and avocado with a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese. Dinner's done!
What You Need:
(Makes: 4 servings)
2 teaspoons of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
4 boneless of skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
1 tablespoon of canola oil
1 can (15 ounces) of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup of frozen corn
1 cup of chunky salsa
What to Do:
STEP 1) Combine the chili powder, salt and pepper; rub over both sides of chicken. In a large nonstick skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170 degrees. Remove and keep warm.
STEP 2) Add the beans, corn and salsa to the pan; heat through. Serve on the side of the chicken.
STEP 3) Happy Mardi Gras & Enjoy!
