1 can Black Beans, Drained and Rinsed

1 cup Corn Kernels

1 cup Salsa

1 cup Cooked Rice

4 (18x12-inch) sheets Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil

Cooking Spray

4 tsp. Taco Seasoning

4 tsp. Cilantro, chopped

1 cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

Lime Wedges, for Garnish

Step 1


In a large bowl, combine the black beans, corn, salsa and cooked rice. Spray 4 foil rectangles with cooking spray. Divide the bean mixture evenly onto the foil rectangles.

Step 2


Season the chicken breasts with taco seasoning. Place one chicken breast onto each pile of bean mixture. Top with the chopped cilantro.

Step 3

Foil & Grill

Working with the long sides of the foil, pull up to join over the chicken breast. Fold over to seal, leaving some space for steam. Fold in the short sides to tightly seal each packet. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill packets for 15 to 20 minutes. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.

Step 4

Melt & Serve

Remove packets from the grill and carefully open. Sprinkle the shredded Cheddar on top of each chicken breast. Close the foil and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese has melted and the chicken has rested. Serve in the foil packet with lime wedges on the side.
