Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken


1 ½  pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (5 pieces)

15 ounce can black beans, drained

15 ounce can corn, drained

16 ounce jar salsa (I used Desert Pepper Trading Co.’s Salsa Del Rio – Medium.)

salt and pepper


Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

Place chicken thighs in slow cooker.

Top with drained black beans and corn.

Stir in salsa.

Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours, until chicken is cooked through.  The chicken should shred easily just by stirring after cooking.

This is great served over rice, in a burrito/taco, or as a sandwich.

Serves 6 or more.
