Meal Mondays: Salsa Chicken

Salsa chicken recipe

Dinnertime has done it again and sent me a delicious recipe my family devoured (and I have a family of picky eaters).  This dinner was so quick and easy to prepare – just about anyone can cook it.  My place of employment sponsors our subscription to this great service.  I have never prepared my black beans and corn this way and I guarantee your tastebuds will be singing.  Please ENJOY this recipe and leave a comment if and when you try it to let me know what your family thought.
