  • 4 oz . skinless , boneless grilled chicken breast
  • 1/2 head of Romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/3 cup Goya black beans
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for the caramelized onion
  • 1 tbsp caramelized onion
  • 1 green onion , chopped
  • 1/3 cup whole milk Greek yogurt , like Fage
  • 2 tbsp Pace salsa
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp Penzey's salsa and pico seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro , coarsely chopped
  • grape tomatoes (optional)


  • Use a heavy skillet to caramelize 1/2 of a finely diced onion with 1 tbsp vegetable oil, using low temperature, 10 mins
  • Drain and rinse 1 can of black beans, then add to the onions along with 1 tbsp. Penzey's salsa and pico seasoning, or similar, 1/8 tsp. cayenne, and a pinch of salt, keep warm.
  • Lightly coat the chicken breast with olive oil, then season all sides with your choice of chipotle style seasoning, (I used Penzey's chicken taco seasoning)
  • Grill chicken breast in a heavy skillet or cast iron grill pan on high heat, smooth side down for 2 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken over, lower the heat to low, cover the skillet for 6 to 8 minutes until the internal temperature is at least 140°, remove to a plate then rest the chicken 5 minutes covered before slicing.
  • Assemble the ingredients in a bowl first putting the romaine on the bottom, mixing in some chopped cilantro.
  • Put the beans on top of the lettuce, then add the sliced grilled chicken breast, the yogurt and salsa, then garnish with chopped green onion, more cilantro, and a few halved grape tomatoes.
  • Serve warm
