Thursday is a very busy day for me so this makes it crock pot cooking day.  Today's mission was to find a delicious recipe that is easy to put together in a crock pot and forget about while I go about my day.  This is a meal I found on and I decided to alter it a little bit.  This one is super simple and makes the house smell great!

Here's what you'll need

Santa Fe Chicken
2 15 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 14 oz cans tomatoes w/green chiles
8 oz corn
3 scallions
1/2 cup cilantro
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
3 chicken breast
Rice or Tortillas

Chop cilantro and scallions.

Drain and rinse black beans.

Add beans, tomatoes, corn, spices, scallions, and cilantro to crock pot.

Stir to combine ingredients.

Place chicken breast on top.  Cook on high 6 hours or on low for 10 hours.

About 2 hours before meal is done, remove chicken and shred with two forks.  Return shredded chicken to crock pot and continue cooking for remaining time.

Serve over rice or you can use this as a tortilla filling.

Although this recipe is a "skinny" meal with low calories (around 190 calories a serving), for a dinner you could serve it with sour cream or cheese to give it that little extra something and it would still be wonderful.
