  • 4 large chicken breast (boneless and skinless)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 10 oz Rotel (drained well)
  • 15 oz corn (drained well)
  • 15 oz black beans (drained and rinsed well)
  • 1 cup Colby jack cheese (shredded)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Season chicken with cumin, onion, powder, and garlic powder. Place each chicken it separate pieces of foil and roll up the sides. Place each foil back in a casserole dish together. 
  • Evenly add Rotel, corn, and black beans into each foil packet. Top each foil pack with shredded cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken is cooked through. 


If you don't have these seasonings you could also use a taco seasoning.  
I bring the foil together at the top but do not seal completely. 

Grilling Instructions:

Preheat your grill on medium/high heat. Prepare foil packets according to instructions then place foil packers directly on your grill. Allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and at a safe temperature.
