Ingredients for Marinade:

  • cup CRISCO® Canola Oil

  • cup water

  • cup lime juice

  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves


  • 1 cup purchased salsa

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup canned or frozen corn

Optional Garnish:

  • 1 tablespoon Sour cream

  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ¼ cup Diced avocado


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients. Transfer to a self-sealing plastic bag. Add chicken breasts; marinate 30 minutes in refrigerator.

  2. While chicken is marinating, combine salsa, black beans and corn in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat, until corn is tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill or broil chicken breasts, turning once, about 7 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center.

  4. Place each chicken breast on a plate; top with salsa mixture and garnish with sour cream, cheese, and avocado. Serve immediately.
