Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts (2-3 pounds of chicken total)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 15 ounce can of black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 medium bell pepper (any color) seeded and diced
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese (or Mexican blend)

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to 350F (medium on gas grills).
  • Cut 4 large rectangles of foil. Spray each with non-stick cooking spray. Place one chicken bread on each piece of foil.
  • In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture on both sides of each chicken breast.
  • Top the chicken breasts with a generous amount of black beans, corn, and diced bell pepper, then spoon the salsa over top.
  • Fold the foil in half over the chicken and vegetables. Twist the edges of the foil to create a completely closed packet.
  • Grill the chicken foil packets over medium heat for 10 minutes, then flip and grill for another 10 minutes until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165F.
  • Allow the chicken packets to cool on a large baking sheet for 5 minutes, then carefully cut them open and serve.
