I love recipes that take about 30 minutes or less to cook. When I'm stretched for time during the week, the last thing I want to do is spend time in the kitchen. So when I found this recipe for chipotle baked chicken, I wanted to try it right away. It took minutes to prepare and I already had most of the ingredients on hand.

Ingredients

  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil
  • 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen yellow corn
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup chipotle flavored marinade, divided
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 to 1 1/4 lb.)

Southwest Dressing: combine 1/4 cup chipotle marinade with 1/2 cup light sour cream or Ranch dressing.

Garnish: whole or crushed tortilla chips, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 13x9x2-inch baking pan with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil.

Combine black beans, corn, tomatoes and onion; season to taste. Add 1/2 cup chipotle marinade. Spoon into foil-lined pan.

Place chicken breasts on top of vegetables; season to taste. Spoon remaining 1/4 cup chipotle marinade on chicken breasts. Cover pan with a sheet of foil; crimp to seal edges.

To serve this meal as a salad, spoon black bean salsa over salad greens, top with diagonally sliced chicken strips, Southwest Dressing and garnishes. 

Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until chicken registers 170°F. on thermometer. Top with Southwest Dressing and garnish as desired.

Moms, what are your fastest go to meals for weeknights?

Something that I can cook in the oven and leave for awhile. I hate tending to meat for some reason. LOL I get these spices you put in a bag that is provided in the package....I usually have chicken in the gravy, or pork chops in a light gravy. It's so yummy and easy.

Our fastest meals might be brats or sloppy joes.

Our fastest meal is some type of pasta.  Tonight I'll be making something with ground turkey since I have it thawed.
