CEiMB: Chicken with Warm Tomato, Corn, and Black Bean Salad
It's Thursday! That means it is time for another Craving Ellie in My Belly recipe. This week's recipe was chosen by Danica of Danica's Daily. She chose for us to make Chicken with Warm Tomato and Corn Salad from So Easy: Luscious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week by Ellie Krieger. A link to the recipe online can be found online at Ellie's website here. This was a perfect recipe for summer. It is full of wonderful summer vegetables like corn and tomatoes. I used cherry tomatoes and cilantro that I picked from my garden and fresh corn that I picked up from a farmer's market earlier this week.
I changed this recipe up a bit, instead of salt and pepper, I used my favorite southwest/Mexican spice, Goya Adobo with cumin to season the chicken and the corn and tomato salad. I also added a jalapeño to the salad, and, instead of avocado, which I only like in guacamole form, I added a can of black beans. Black beans and corn is one of my favorite combinations, and I thought that it would add some substance to the dish and make it more of a complete meal.
I love the flavors of this dish, it is fresh and light, a great summer meal. Thanks to Danica for a great pick, and be sure to check out the Craving Ellie in My Belly blogroll to see what the other bloggers did with their dishes.
