Salsa and Black Bean Chicken

I decided to try this recipe because I needed something easy and I had all of these ingredients on hand. Honestly, I didn't have high hopes for this, but it turned out really good! Michael's review: "This is fucking delicious!" That's high praise in this house.

I served this with lime-cilantro rice and some steamed broccoli.

1 1.3 lb package chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups salsa (I used Safeway brand chunky habanero salsa.)
2 cups cooked black beans (I used 1 can, rinsed and drained.)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder (The first time I made this, I minced a clove of garlic. The second time, I left it out and didn't notice the difference)
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions Place the chicken breasts into an 8×8 inch glass baking dish. Pour the salsa over the top and then stir in the black beans, cumin and garlic powder.
Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Dice the chicken and mix it all up with the salsa and black beans.
