1/2 can (14-16 oz.) black beans, drained
1/4 tsp. cumin
Juice of 1 lime

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 oz each)
1 cup prepared salsa verde
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper and sear in the hat pan for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, until a nice crust develops, then flip. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, then spoon the salsa over the meat, top with the cheese and place in the oven. Bake until chicken is cooked through and the cheese is fully melted and bubbling, no more than 5 minute. Divide the beans among four plates, top with the chicken and garnish with cilantro.
