Cumin-Spiced Chicken with Chunky Tomato Sauce

I really should re-title this blog "Recipes I Pulled from Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast: Over 280 Incredibly Flavorful 5-Ingredient 15-Minute Recipes".  I won't, of course, because that's NOT all I do and I am perfectly capable of preparing meals that are not found within this cookbook's pages . . . I'm just in a rut, I guess.

I sprinkled (thinly pounded) chicken breasts with cumin and cilantro, then grilled them until browned on both sides.

I used habanero Rotel tomatoes for my sauce, and topped the chicken breasts with low fat cheddar cheese.  As I side dish I served Chili-Lime Corn on the Cob:

(I apologize for the poor picture quality, buttered corn is surprisingly difficult to photography).  The compound butter, made for the corn, is a combination of butter (obviously), chili powder (I used a mix of chili powder and cayenne pepper), lime zest, salt, and white pepper.  It gave the corn a nice kick and a zingy flavor (yes, I'm using words like zingy now.  It's the best way to describe lime corn, by  far).

These are SPECTACULAR.  ZINGY.  INSANE.  I can imagine absolutely no life event in which these would be appropriate, for me, so I'd probably wear them when it was entirely inappropriate:  grocery shopping, flea market, anywhere in North Dakota while visiting my family.
