Corn Salsa with Pepper and Thyme Chicken - weekend recipe

The theme for recipes this month is Salsa, Jelly and Corn.  This is the perfect time of year for preserving.  Jams, Jellies, as well as Salsa and Chutney are perfect for saving your garden harvest.

Later this month I will chat about canning and preserving, but this first recipe is just a great way to enjoy salsa and corn on a wonderful southwestern chicken.  You can make extra to use on pork or beef or tacos.

4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
2 cups uncooked White or bi color Sweet Corn cut from the  cob, or 1 can (15 1/4 oz.) Whole Kernel corn, drained
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups fresh diced tomato (or one 14 1/2 oz. can Diced Tomatoes)
2 Tbls chopped white onion
1 to 2 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
Fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped Flour tortillas (optional)
Chopped chili peppers (optional) 

Preheat broiler. Sprinkle chicken with pepper and thyme. Place on unheated rack of broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning once. 2. Combine corn, undrained tomatoes and cornstarch in medium saucepan for salsa. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in beans; heat through. 3. Spoon salsa onto plate. Top with chicken. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley and serve with flour tortillas and chopped chili peppers, if desired.
