Ingredients

    1/2 can (14-16 oz.) black beans, drained
    1/4 tsp. cumin
    Juice of 1 lime
    salt and black pepper to taste
    1/2 Tbsp olive oil
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 oz each)
    1 cup prepared salsa verde
    1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
    chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combing the black beans and cumin in a saucepan and heat all the way through. Squeeze in the lime juice and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, but warm before serving.

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.
