Creamy Mexican Chicken

This is one of my easy, delicious, go to dishes. It's great for a family night in but it's also a great dish that you can take to a friend. Just have everything in the pan ready to go, and finish cooking it there!


1 T oil
3 chicken breasts, raw, chopped into small cubes
1 small Spanish onion (yellow onion), chopped
1 large or 2 small bell peppers, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can of yellow corn, rinsed and drained
1 can of low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 Tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup of salsa
1 block of 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 350.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Over medium, saute chicken, onion, peppers, cumin, cayenne and black pepper together, making sure the chicken gets totally cooked. Once chicken is cooked, add garlic, let saute for 1 minute. Next, add salsa, beans and corn. Mix well. Add cream cheese, mix until completely distributed.

Pour into an 8*8 dish (I couldn't find mine so I used a different size). Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then top with cheddar cheese and put it back in the oven until the cheese is melted.
