Instructions Checklist
  • Place the chicken breasts into a slow cooker, and pour in the kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, onions, green bell pepper, tomato paste, brown sugar, rice vinegar, chili black bean sauce, and sea salt. Stir to combine all ingredients, and set the cooker to High. Cook for 1 hour; stir again, and set the cooker to Low. Cook for 4 more hours.

  • Remove the chicken breasts, shred with 2 forks, and stir the shredded chicken back into the chili. Sprinkle the top of the chili with Cheddar cheese, and serve.

Cook's Note

I substitute the brown sugar for 2 tablespoons brown sugar substitute (such as Splenda (R) Brown Sugar Blend).

Amazing! Can't believe how easy this is to make and my whole family just loved this meal. Super easy. Just drop in the ingredients and turn on the pot. I didn't do the 1 hr high setting followed by 4 low. Instead I put everything in the pot the night before and put it in the fridge. Pulled the pot out in the morning and cranked the dial to low. Left it in 8 hours. Fantastic! Read More

I have made this twice. The second time by accident. It always sounds so good but my kids will not eat it. I am not sure if it is the thick consistency or what but I won't make it again. I think our family must lean more toward liking savory over sweet. I prepared it exactly as written. Read More

Made this chili today and my husband and I loved it! We are snowed in and it made a perfect comfort-food dinner! I made a few changes however. I added a bit more brown sugar (another TBSP or so) added a small can of Hunt's diced tomatos and because I did not have the black bean chili sauce on hand I used a TBSP a few pinches more of chili powder as a substitute. Served it topped with shredded marbled cheddar cheese and a little sour cream on top. Really really yummy... Read More

Oh yeah about the dish it's super yummy I would recommend this dish for the pickiest kids the veggies just blend in they'll never know! Thanks Chrysta Read More

This was really good. I did not have the Asian Chili Black Bean Sauce and could not find it after going to 3 grocery stores so I just added a can of Rotel diced Tomatoes with Green chili's. It gave it that Hot Sweet taste that the Asian Black Bean Sauce would of added. We really enjoyed this with some Frito's on top and a fresh loaf of French Bread. Yum Thanks for the Recipe. Read More

This was SO tasty - who knew that the chicken would shred so well and taste so delicious in a chili and loved the flavouring of all the beans! Read More

AWESOME! Based on suggestions I mixed all ingredients together the night before (minus the chicken) put it in the crock pot in the morning with frozen chicken breasts and when we got home we had the most wonderful dinner! No leftovers at all! Thanks so much! Read More
