The easiest tasty dinner ever!

I love fancy food as much as the next foodie. I enjoy cooking from scratch and savoring the results of my labors in the kitchen. However, sometimes, simple is good. And for a weeknight after a long day, simple is great! Especially when simple is really, really tasty!

I saw this recipe on the blog Cheap, Healthy, Good this morning and suddenly had the hugest craving for it. I knew this would be dinner tonight. It did not disappoint. YUM!


Tin Foil Mexican Chicken
Adapted from Cheap, Healthy, Good

Multiply accordingly per how many chicken breasts you need to prepare.

1 chicken breast, seasoned with garlic salt and a few grinds of black pepper
1/3 C canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 C sweet corn
1/3 C chunky salsa
A bit of grated cheese and fresh cilantro

Season your chicken breasts. Please in a large square of tin foil. spoon the beans, corn and salsa on top. Fold up the edges and roll down the top, but leave a little space for steam to escape. Place on a baking sheet in a 450 degree oven. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Open the foil and sprinkle with a bit of cheese, then bake 5 minutes or so more.

Serve over a bed of quinoa or rice with fresh cilantro and perhaps a dollop of sour cream.
