Grilled Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

Black bean salsa with mango gives this dish a Mexican taste without too much heat. I like to slice the chicken and serve it over a long grain and wild rice mix. —Terri Clouse, Connoquenessing, Pennsylvania

    Made this into a rice bowl with brown rice. This was delicious! Only added a pinch of salt to the salsa.
