Texas Layered Salsa Chicken Bake

Submitted by: MJ-SHE-BEAST

Introduction

A fairly easy dish to prepare and lower in sodium thanks to a spark recipe for an incredibly flavorful taco/fajita seasoning! You CAN use chicken breasts, but the boneless, skinless thighs give the dish a much moister, juicier flavor.

Ingredients

    2 TBS Low Sodium Homemade Taco Seasoning - get recipe at : http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/recipe_details.asp?nutrition_id=52620333
    1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
    2 tablespoons KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Dressing
    1 cup canned no-salt-added black beans, rinsed
    1/2 cup frozen corn or canned (rinse)
    2 green onions, chopped
    1 cup salsa
    1/2 cup Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese or 2% Milk Finely Shredded Cheddar
    2 2/3 cups hot cooked long-grain brown rice

Tips

Do yourself a favor and go to the trouble of making the taco seasoning yourself. You control the heat AND sodium this way. The recipe calls for a salt substitute, but I don't use it and don't miss it at all!
