Rub oil on chicken and BBQ or bake until done, let cool and chop into small bite size pieces. Lightly salt and pepper chicken while cooking.

In large skillet preheat with oil over medium high heat.

Add red pepper and green onion and saute for 5 minutes. After soft add chicken and cook for another 3 minutes. Add corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeño, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook stirring for 5 minutes until incorporated.
