Mexican Chicken

This is an easy recipe that even a novice cook can make. It is my husband's favorite. The best part is it is inexpensive to make and has only 4 ingredients.



  • 4 single serving size boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 oz) jar of salsa (I like Chi Chi's or your favorite brand)
  • 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese


Brown the chicken breasts in a frying pan that has a lid in a small amount of oil.

After the chicken is brown, add the entire jar of salsa and the black beans.

Cover pan and let the chicken simmer until cooked through (should take about 10-15 minutes).

Turn off burner and put shredded cheddar cheese on top of the chicken and recover). Let sit till the cheese melts and serve.

You can serve with rice or whatever you choose.

My husband likes it just like it is and usually he eats most of it by himself.

This recipe is excellent. I found the exact recipe in a Kraft magazine. I also add corn. Yum! (02/28/2010)
