SLOW-COOKER MEXICAN CHICKEN AND RICE

Ingredients

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups converted long-grain white rice
  • 1/2 large white onion, sliced
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar salsa
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet dry taco seasoning mix, divided
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained

Directions

  1. Pour the chicken stock into a slow cooker, and stir in the rice, onion, salsa, green chilies, and half the taco seasoning. Rub the remaining taco seasoning over the chicken breasts, and place into the cooker. Place the lid on the cooker, and set to high setting.
  2. Cook until the rice is thickened and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 3 hours. About 20 minutes before serving time, turn the cooker to warm setting. Remove the chicken breasts, and slice them. Stir the chicken and the black beans into the slow cooker. Return lid to cooker, allow the beans to heat, and serve.
