SPICY MEXICAN SKILLET CHICKEN

1/2 to 1 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb)

1 Tbs vegetable oil

1 can (15-oz) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup cooked fresh or frozen (thawed) corn

1/3 cup chunky-style salsa

1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup)

2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro

Mix chili powder, salt and pepper.  Sprinkle evely over both sides of chicken breast halves.  Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat.  Cook chicken in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

Stir in remaining ingredients.  Heat to boiling; reduce heat.  Cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are heated through.

Ugh, that must be rough!  Anyway, you could definitely leave out the corn.  Perhaps you could substitute another veggie that is colorful and has some sweetness, such as chopped bell peppers or mini sweet peppers.

 I agree...leaving out the corn should be fine.
