10 minutes
7 hours, 30 minutes
7 hours, 40 minutes
1lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced to 1" pieces
1 14oz can (400g) diced tomatoes
1½ cups (340ml) chicken broth
1 white onion, small diced
1 teaspoon tsp cumin
½ teaspoon chili flakes
1 cup (225g) brown rice
1 14oz can (400g) black beans, drained
½ cup (115g) frozen corn
1 avocado, sliced
½ bunch cilantro rough chopped
½ cup (115g) sour cream
Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker and pour over the can of tomatoes, chicken broth, onions, cumin and chili flakes. Mix well and cook on high for 2 hours
After 2 hours, add in the rice, black beans and corn. Cook for another hour or until the rice is cooked.
Once ready, finish the dish with the avocado, cilantro, and a spoonful of sour cream. Serve immediately.
Pro tip: White rice is notoriously difficult to cook in a slow cooker – It tends to get mushy or cook unevenly. If you are not a fan of brown rice and prefer white, you can substitute it with Instance rice added in the last 30 minutes of cooking.
