This grilled lemon chicken with black bean, corn and tomato salad was the most satisfying and tasty meal and it kept me full for hours. Here’s how I made them!

Black bean, Corn, Tomato Salad: Add one can of black beans that were drained and rinsed to a large bowl. Add 2 cups canned corn 🌽

 and two cups of halved cherry tomatoes 🍅 along with 1 tablespoon minced shallots, the juice of 2 limes, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a handful of fresh chopped cilantro. Mix together and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Grilled Lemon Chicken:

– 1 lb. boneless chicken breast
– Juice of 1 lemon
– 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
– 1/2 tsp. salt
– 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
– 1/4 tsp. garlic powder


Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder to a shallow bowl. Beat vigorously with a fork to combine into a dressing. Cut each breast in half to make 4 even pieces about 1/2 inch thick. Add the chicken to the dressing and let marinate for at least 20 mins. flipping half way through. Grill 5-7 minutes each side or bake on 400F for 25-30 mins. flipping half way through or until golden brown.
