Santa Fe Chicken

Yield: 4 Servings


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded to ½ inch thickness)

Juice of 2 limes

Salt and pepper

½ cup sundried tomatoes

½ cup black beans

2 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Add chicken breasts to a large bowl. Add lime juice and toss to coat. Marinate for about 10 minutes. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat an outdoor grill over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook turning at least once for about 6-7 minutes per side or until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.). During the last few minutes of cooking top each chicken breast with some black beans, sundried tomatoes, and cheese. Cook until the cheese has melted. Remove from the grill. Let rest 5 minutes before serving. Top with fresh cilantro.
