Entrees - Phase 1 - I have adapted Easy salsa baked chicken recipe

Someone may have posted something similar in the past but here goes:

Chicken breast browned in a dutch oven.
When mostly done, take out, cut up chicken and deglaze pot with 1/3 cup salsa & water mix.
Add chicken back in with cilantro and juice from half a lime.
Add one can of chopped tomatoes and a 1/2-3/4 cup of salsa- more if you wish.
Simmer on stove until it reduces a little and thickens..
Add 2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained.
Top with low fat cheese and bake until cheese is brown and bubbly at 350.

I use medium heat salsa, and when browning chicken breasts I season with salt, pepper, cumin, and a little cinnamon.

I believe this is all phase friendly.

Hope others will enjoy!
