Expert Tips

  • In step 2, cover grill; cook over medium-low heat.
  • Black beans are loaded with fiber—the soluble kind that helps to lower blood cholesterol. Start slowly so you have time to get used to more fiber.
  • Feel free to take some liberties with this recipe. Use a grill pan to cook the chicken instead of a grill, and add other healthy toppings, such as lettuce and chopped tomatoes.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • To broil chicken, set oven control to broil. Spray broiler pan rack with cooking spray. Place chicken on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops 4- to 6-inches from heat, about 12 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
