Grilled Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

Photobucket

Welcome everyone!
This is my first official post for my new blog “Caitlin’s Confections.” This post is actually a transfer from my old blog. I loved the pictures and recipe so much, I couldn’t part with it. This is a very healthy and tasty recipe that can be made with ease. I will note that the chicken rub can be very overwhelming and a little spicy. My pallet is sensitive to spicy foods. So just experiment and be prepared if your pallet is sensitive as well. Overall I hope that you enjoy the recipe! Please pass along my blog info and spread the word!
 Ingredients:
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise so that you have 2 thin pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
