If you want to grill fresh chicken for this recipe, heat an outdoor grill or stove-top grill pan. Coat two 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts with cooking spray and sprinkle them with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before cutting into chunks.

Black beans would make a tasty addition to this recipe (could affect PointsPlus values).
