Equipment

  • 1 6 qt crock pot

Ingredients
  

  • 3 pounds Chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies
  • 1 cup Green chili sauce
  • 1 large Onion
  • 1 large Bell pepper
  • 12 oz Pico de gallo
  • 3 cups Canned black beans
  • 12 cup White or brown rice Cooked rice
  • 12 oz Low fat shredded cheese

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the Chicken: Place the Kirkland organic boneless & skinless chicken breasts at the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Add Vegetables and Sauce: Chop the raw onion finely and add it to the crock pot along with the Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies and homemade green chili sauce. Spread the Pace pico de gallo evenly over the other ingredients.
  • Cook: Cover the crock pot and set it to cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. The chicken should be thoroughly cooked and tender when done.
  • Add Black Beans: About 30 minutes before the end of cooking time, add the drained canned black beans to the crock pot. Stir gently to combine without breaking the chicken apart too much.
  • Shred the Chicken: Once the cooking time is up, use two forks to shred the chicken directly in the crock pot. Mix well with the sauce and beans to ensure the flavors are well combined.
  • Serve: Prepare a serving of rice for each meal. Place a generous portion of the green chili chicken on top of the rice. Sprinkle a serving of low-fat shredded cheese over the hot chicken and rice mixture to allow the cheese to melt slightly.
