Here's an easy spicy dinner. While your chicken is simmering on the stove, prepare a tasty quick-cooking whole grain like quinoa or brown rice (convenient fast-cooking versions of brown rice are now in supermarkets). And, in keeping with the Mexican theme of the evening, jazz up your grains with some fresh low-sodium salsa. Got leftover chicken breasts? Freeze them for future dinners or lunchtime sandwiches.

  1. * A simple way to roast corn is to pour kernels (thawed if from the freezer) on a nonstick cookie pan. Bake at 425 degrees F until browned (about 20 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  2. In a deep nonstick saute pan, sear the chicken breasts on one side over medium-high heat until brown.
  3. Flip chicken over and add remaining ingredients, except cilantro. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes at low heat. Check for doneness (chicken's internal temperature should be 165 degrees F.)
  4. Add the cilantro. Cook for 1 minute more. Serve hot.
