Prep: 10 minutes

Four 4-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 cups frozen sweet corn kernels, thawed

3 tbsp. whipped cream cheese

2 tbsp. light mayonnaise

1 tsp. lime juice

1 tsp. taco seasoning

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9”X13” baking pan with nonstick spray.

Place chicken in the pan. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, combine corn, cream cheese, mayo, lime juice, taco seasoning, and cayenne pepper. Mix until uniform. Stir in 2 tbsp. cilantro.

Spoon corn mixture over chicken. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.

HG Tip: This recipe works with any frozen corn, but for added flavor, try a roasted variety like those by Trader Joe’s and Green Giant!

HG FYI: Not all taco seasonings are gluten free, so read labels carefully if that’s a concern.
