  • 450g chicken breast or thighs. Chopped into bite-size pieces

  • 1 tin sweetcorn drained, or you can use frozen

  • 1 jar salsa

  • 1 tin black beans drained and rinsed


  1. Put half the jar of salsa in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Put the chicken on top of the salsa.
  3. Put the sweetcorn and black beans and the remaining salsa on top of the chicken.
  4. Cook on low for 6-7 hours, or high for 3-4 hours. Serve with rice.

Handy Hint

Spice it up with hot sauce if you like. Can also be cooked on the stove top - just brown meat first and add the rest after all in the same pan. Serve with grated cheese on top.

    this is the easiest slow cooker recipe ever - you don't have to brown the chicken before it goes in the slow cooker, and it just involes 2 cans and a jar! It's really tasty, I think thanks to the flavour the black beans add, and is very low fat and healthy. Great if you like mexican style food.
