I found this recipe on epicurious and after tweeking it a bit , have made it over and over again. Serve with Three Bell Pepper Slaw With Chipotle Dressing which I have posted seperately.

I served this with a side of rice and the recommended pepper slaw. It was a good meal, but we found the chicken and black bean salsa to be a bit dry. I had used fresh corn cut from the cob instead of the canned corn, perhaps this was part of the problem. We spooned a bit of my homemade canned salsa over the bean mixture on the chicken and found this to be a great remedy. The flavors were a perfect complement.
