Cooking Style: Grilled chicken and black beans

Here is a recipe I made last week. I like to get ideas on Skinnytaste and tweak them with the ingredients I have on hand. I made grilled chicken with black beans, a variation of this

Thanks for reading!


16 oz (2) boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and fresh cracked pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
juice of 1 lime

For the Black Beans:

1/4 cup red onion, chopped
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt, to taste
1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained


Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients, toss well to coat and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, combine the red onion, lime juice, olive oil and season with salt, to taste. Mix well then combine with the remaining ingredients; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Grill pan to medium high, discard the chicken marinade and grill the chicken breasts about 3 minutes on each side, or until the center is cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and slice the chicken on the bias. Serve the sliced chicken and black beans.
