What's better than throwing a bunch of ingredients in a pot, forgetting about it for several hours, and then having dinner all ready with minimum effort on your part?
Your husband doing it. And he found a good recipe the other day that I thought I'd share.
Black Bean Chicken Bowl
**Not a great title. If it were a book, the marketing department would have tossed it out on it's ear and picked a new one, like maybe Beans, Chicken, and a Tasty Hint of Chili: One woman's journey with her crock pot. I'll let you pick the recipe name.**
4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 cup frozen corn
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
Add all ingredients to the crock pot. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken and shred/chop and then return to crock pot. Serve.
Voila! Dinner is served!
We are going to alter the recipe just a little bit for our family's tastes. We will only add 2 chicken breasts (there was a veritable plethora of chicken with 4), 2 cans of broth, 2 cans of beans, and half a tsp/Tbsp more of the spices to make up for the extra beans & broth.
