    Default Spicy Skillet Chicken

    Need a 30-minute dinner with tasty chicken breasts? Grab a skillet, some sassy salsa and a few extras.

    Prep Time: 25 min
    Total Time: 25 min
    Makes: 4 servings

    1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 can (15 oz) Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
    1 can (11 oz) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
    1/3 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa
    2 cups hot cooked rice

    1. In small bowl, mix chili powder, salt and pepper; sprinkle evenly over both sides of chicken breasts.
    2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
    3. Stir in beans, corn and salsa. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are hot. Serve with rice.

    Variation: Make a quick chicken tortilla sandwich by cooking just the chicken breasts as directed. Spread 4 tortillas each with 2 tablespoons salsa and sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese to within 1 inch of edge. Place chicken breast in center, and fold sides of tortilla over chicken. Microwave briefly to melt cheese.
