My husband loves any spicy food. But this is one quick-fix and low-fat recipe we can both enjoy. While the chicken cooks, put together individual salads of packaged shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and avocado with a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese. Dinner's done! —Christine Zongker, Spring Hill, Kansas
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup frozen corn

- Add the beans, corn and salsa to the pan; heat through. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.
