Spice-Rubbed Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

This recipe was kinda tedious with all the chopping of veggies, but it was really good (and healthy- only 325 calories per serving). Sheldon and I love grilled chicken with a salsa topping and this is a great addition to our recipe book.


1 large tomato, diced
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup diced yellow bell pepper
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 T. finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, juiced


4 (5 to 6 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Olive Oil

Dry Rub Mix:

2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cayenne

1. For the salsa: In a large bowl combine tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, beans, cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. Preheat grill to medium (300-350 degrees F). Brush chicken lightly with oil. Rub chicken with dry rub mix. Place chicken on grill. Grill 6-8 minutes per side or until an instant read thermometer registers 165 degrees F. Serve with black bean salsa.
