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?
