Taco Chicken (Salad)

Some nights, it's not fun to actually "slave" in the kitchen for hours attempting to make a large meal. 
Some nights, I want quick, easy, good, and good for you. my go-to for that.
Taco chicken. Good right outta the oven..
Cooled, cubed, and made into a super good black bean + taco chicken salad!
And the chicken refrigerates fabulous to eat the next day..or the next...or, well, you get the point! =)
I think it's essential to do your own taco seasoning like I posted -here- but you could use prepackaged stuff, too.

Taco Chicken

2 chicken breast
1 taco seasoning packet or recipe
1 cup salsa

Dredge chicken in taco seasoning to coat. Place in pan and pour on salsa. Cover and bake 350 for 15-20 minutes or until the center is no longer pink. Serve with more salsa, shredded cheese, sour cream, and whatever else you like. =)

As a Salad

Prepared Taco Chicken
Shredded lettuce
1 can black beans, rinsed until water is clear
Shredded cheese
Tortilla chips or strips
Equal parts Ranch and Salsa (I do homemade, both, 1/2 cup each)

Layer first 5 ingredients on plate. Mix ranch and salsa well and pour over salad. Mix to combine! 
See? How easy?!
