I found this in a magazine and thought it sounded good. I plan to try it when I have access to an oven again.

I seasoned the chicken with salt and chipotle powder then threw together a fresh salsa by which the freshness can make all the difference in the world. I, also, subbed the refried beans with a can of drained black beans. What else? Let me think...if there could be only one animal to eat, please let it be a chicken. What? It could happen.

  1. Preheat oven to 200c.
  2. Heat the oil in a large oven proof frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally until cooked through and no longer pink (about 20 minutes).
  3. Spoon the beans evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle one cup of cheese over the beans; top with salsa sauce. Sprinkle chopped peppers evenly over salsa. Top with the remaining cheese.
  4. Place the pan in the oven and bake until the topping is heated through and cheese has melted (about 15 to 20 minutes)
  5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on each portion and a sprinkling of fresh coriander.
