Sorry I didn’t get a picture of this recipe.  It was so delicious, by the time I went back to take picture it was gone! I will be making this again in the near future, so picture to come when I make it again 🙂 Enjoy!

Ingredients:
for the chicken-
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin, ground
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp cayenne, ground

for the chili-
1 1/2 c frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained, rinsed
1 can mild Rotel
1 small yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 c chicken stock
1/2 tbsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin, ground
1/4 tsp oregano
dash cayenne pepper

optional toppings-
shredded cheese
tortilla chips

Directions:
1. Prep the chicken by adding chicken, extra virgin olive oil, and seasonings for chicken into a large Zip Lock bag. Seal and toss until chicken is coated well (I usually freeze my chicken at this point until I’m ready to use it. I add it to the crockpot frozen, but you can add it right after prepping if you want to make the chili right away).
2. Add corn, black beans, Rotel, onion, garlic, chicken stock, prepared chicken breast, and seasonings to crockpot.
3. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 4-6 hours. With about 30 minutes of cook time left, use tongs to remove chicken breasts onto a plate. Shred chicken with two forks and add back to crockpot after all chicken is shredded. Allow to cook remaining 30 minutes.
4. Serve in bowls topped with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.

Yields about 8-10 servings, serving size 1 c
