  • cup honey

  • 6 cloves garlic

  • 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, or more to taste

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed


  1. Blend honey, garlic, and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce together in a food processor until smooth.

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

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

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

  5. 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.
