The other day I found myself face-to-face with several dilemmas. 1) I had way too many frozen chicken breasts in my freezer. 2) I really wanted to do something other than chicken piccata or grilled chicken. 3) I needed another excuse to use my Crockpot. 4) I've been ill for the past week or so and it was really necessary for me to make something that took little effort. Lo and behold, Ridiculously Easy Mexican Chicken and Beans. This was adapted from the Betty Crocker Slow Cooker Mexican Pork recipe. Enjoy!
3 chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes*
(chicken cuts easily when still somewhat frozen)

1 15.5 ozcan of black beans

1 16 oz jar of chunky salsa*

chili powder, salt and pepper to taste
cooked rice and cilantro for garnish
Makes 4 servings
Set your Crockpot to 6 hours or the medium setting.
Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and season with salt, pepper and chili powder to taste. Put into Crockpot.
