    This was wonderful!! I doubled the recipe because I have a large family, and I added the black beans that were suggested. I also used frozen chicken tenders instead of chicken breast. It required an extra bit of baking time, but ooohhh, was it worth the wait! It was awesome! - 7/27/09

    This is a favorite in our house, and it's simple too! This recipe really saves on sodium and fat by not having taco seasoning or cream of chicken soup. YUMMMY!!! - 5/12/09

    Yummm! Thanks! I needed something quick and easy. I added a 1/2 can of black beans and 1/2 can of corn instead of just one can of corn - both were leftovers from a previous meal, so its what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing! - 10/3/10

    Made this tonight. Very tasty! I used frozen corn, a 15 oz can of black beans & fresh salsa. Also made my own "chips" from whole wheat tortillas that I cut, sprayed with Pam & sprinkled with garlic salt. (I should not have left them in the oven on broil, tho!) - 3/10/09

    Excellent and super easy. I added sliced poblano, yellow, and orange peppers, and mushrooms. Put it in low carb tortillas with lettuce. Great dinner! Would give it 5 stars but it won't let me select any, - 2/24/14

    I make this often my family loves it. I cook chicken on stovetop with cooking spray, when chicken is almost done, then I add salsa and black beans and corn. Also great with low fat mexi blend cheese.

  • Looks yummy, but please note that your calculations are incorrect--the protein count is way too low. 1/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breast comes to a bit over 26g of protein, actually. Much better than 10g! - 9/11/12

  • was very good; liked the combination of cheese, corn and salsa; I also added black beans; I felt it could use some SW marinate on the chicken to make it less dry! Maybe it was the chicken I used as I actually prefer dark meat. All the same I have some frozen for later & will make again!!!! - 9/1/10
