If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken.
If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as diced chicken in Steps 1 and 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.
Cook the Chicken
Pat chicken dry. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.
Stir in seasoning blend.
While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.

Drain black beans in a wire-mesh strainer and rinse.

Finish the Chicken
Add black beans, corn, and remaining garlic to pan with chicken. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes.
