Zesty Chicken with Corn Salsa

Add zing to your chicken with chili powder and ground cumin.
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • about 1 1/4 pd chicken tenders or breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 small cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
1.  In a small bowl, combine chili powder, brown sugar and cumin.  Rub both sides of chicken with the spice mixture.
2.  In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Cook chicken in hot oil for 12 mins or until chicken is done.
3.  Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together corn, red pepper, cucumber, kidney beans, lime juice and salt.  
4.  Serve chicken over corn salsa.  

I don't really like cumin, but I thought this was delicious.  I think the brown sugar adds something to the chicken that I've never experienced before.
