When it comes to the ingredients, there are very few, corn and black beans take center stage, highlighted by a few spices and a whole lot of flavor! It's smothered in a delicious tomato based sauce where all the ingredients combine and become one with the chicken! You can hardly see the chicken...but it's there, under all that goodness!

It goes in the oven leaving you plenty of time while it cooks to get some things done around the house.
I personally love the bright colors, the combination of textures and of course the flavors!. Serve it with some white rice or flour tortillas and dinner would be memorable!

1 1/2 tsp Minced Onion
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Oregano

Oil for browning
Season chicken with salt & pepper or seasonings of your liking. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes. (marinating overnight is always better). 
Preheat your oven at 365F . 
In a large very hot oiled  sauce pan, brown the chicken, skin side down. Once all the pieces are browned transfer to a baking pan. In the same saucepan add chicken broth to deglaze it, scrapping all the bits and juices left from browning. Add diced tomatoes, corn, beans and spices. Cook for 5 minutes and cover chicken with this sauce. Cover you baking dish with aluminum foil or a lid and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese and let it melt.
