  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker and mix in honey-chipotle sauce.

  • Cook in the slow cooker on Low for 5 hours.

  • Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred using 2 forks. Return chicken to the slow cooker and stir in black beans.

  • Continue to cook on Low until cooked through, about 30 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Make this dish into a burrito with your other burrito fixings. Or, if you subtract the beans, it's great on a bun.

This was tasty! I halved the recipe, but when I make it again I will do the six-serving version for the sauce because it could have used a little more sauce. I had it over rice with some sour cream and fresh avocado. Read More

This is a keeper. I made the sauce in the food processor and dumped it over the chicken and black beans in my instapot. Set the pressure for 12 minutes and let it naturally release for 10 minutes. Roughly 30 minutes later I was enjoying a delicious dinner. I'm thinking of adding a sweet potato and quinoa to create a chicken bowl. Yumm! Read More
