  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup salsa (I used the fresh kind, not the jarred kind but you could use either)
  • 1/2 cup Corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Optional side dish: frozen potato wedges


  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil, taco seasoning and salt. Bake in the oven 15 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oven, then top with salsa, corn, black beans and cheese. Bake another 10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Remove chicken from oven and top with diced tomatoes and cilantro. Add sliced avocado and lime on the side. I served frozen potato wedges with my chicken as a side dish but that's optional; you could also do sweet potato fries, a side salad, sauteed spinach or more. The choice is up to you!



Make your own taco seasoning using chili powder, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
I like using the Garden Fresh Gourmet salsas because I find it tastes better than the jarred variety.
Serve with sliced avocado and potato wedges or a side salad for a low-carb option.
