This a healthy and tasty supper or lunch option.

Ingredients: 

csingred

-1/2 cup of black beans (opt for low sodium)

-approximately 1/4 cup of light cheese

-4 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast

-green pepper

-red pepper

-2 tablespoons of light sour cream

-1/2 cup of salsa

-Mrs. Dash seasoning blend (I use Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend Salt-Free)

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  While waiting for oven to heat up, put chicken on a tray with some tin foil and add some Mrs. Dash seasoning on top of it.  You can also put the chicken breasts in a baking dish and spray it with some cooking spray to prevent sticking. (I prefer olive oil cooking spray)

2.  Put your chicken in the oven and let it cook.  I find 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes is ideal for my oven.  The time may vary slightly for different brands/models of ovens.  DO NOT under cook chicken.  I made this mistake before and became so ill I thought I was dying.  After your chicken is cooked, it’s a good idea to cut it up into thin slices

Tips:

-Feel free to add as much Mrs. Dash as you want.  It’s made with all natural ingredients, and the best part is that it’s salt-free.

-Stick to REAL chicken breasts.  Some frozen chicken breasts/strips have upwards of 10 ingredients.  What I like to do is buy a bunch when they’re on sale since I eat a ton of chicken.  They stay good for a long time in the freezer.
