1-16 oz. can black beans (Goya)

1-10 oz. skinless boneless chicken breast, pounded to 1/4″ thickness
After pounding chicken, rub with 1/3 of the garlic and then place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Dressing: In a 2-quart casserole dish, combine bell peppers, onion, the remaining garlic, and olive oil; roast for 25 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, 1/4 cup of water and the rosemary. Cover and roast another 20 minutes until tender. Let cool slightly. Place mixture in a food processor, add vinegar and 1/2 of the pepper; puree until smooth.
Chicken: In a skillet sprayed with olive oil, cook chicken over medium-high heat about 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with salt and remaining pepper. Turn the chicken and cook an additional 4 – 5 minutes or until cooked all the way through. Place cooked chicken on a cutting board and let it rest for about 5 minutes, then cut into pieces.
Serving your chicken salad: On a large platter, combine mixed lettuce and arugula. Spread chicken over the top of the lettuce mixture and drizzle with dressing.
