This was very tasty - spicy too. I did not have salsa so I 'improvised' with Rotel mixed with picante sauce. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly as written. The chicken turned out nice and tender and very flavorful - I liked the spices rubbed on before cooking. To be honest, I'm not crazy about corn, so I could have done without it, but DH really enjoyed the whole meal. I'll make this again as I like that it is nicely balanced nutritionally - but I might swap out the corn for carrots. Thanks for posting - made for ZWT8 and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys!

  1. Mix chili powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of chicken breast halves.
  2. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
  3. Stir in beans, corn and salsa. Heat to boiling; reduce heat.
  4. Cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are hot. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired.
