Mexican Chicken - Slow Cooking
by Collette White | 30 October, 2018
Good Afternoon friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope this finds you all well. A few weeks ago I had some chicken breast defrosted but what I was going to make with it for dinner, I forgot I used most of the ingredients the night before. Not wanting to go to the shops and feeling like a slow cooked meal, I decided to raid my fridge and pantry and see what I could come up with. I love doing this! This was the super easy yet super delicious result. I tested it again last week just to make sure it was all good to share and here it is. I LOVE slow cooking meals because I can pop everything together in the morning and when afternoons and nights are busy, dinner is done. I have two electric slow cookers but I also have a ‘slow cooker’ feature within ‘Mabel’ (my Richmond Belling Oven) which I use so often. I wouldn’t be without it. We have no intentions of moving from here but if I did, the first thing I would repurchase would be this oven as I just love it so much. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family. Please let me know!
4 single chicken breast fillets – each cut into half
2 cloves garlic – grated
1 tblspn cumin powder
1 tblspn coriander powder
1 tblspn paprika
1 tblspn parsley flakes
1 tspn fennel seeds
1 brown onion – thinly sliced
½ large fennel – thinly sliced
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
1 tin black beans – drained and washed well
1 tin corn – drained
extra good pinch salt and pepper
Place all the ingredients into a large lasagne dish in the order listed.
Cover with foil (if using your oven) or the lid (if using the slow cooker).
Cook on Medium – Low heat for 6-8 hours or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Serve with rice, fresh parsley, corn chips and sour cream (if your diet allows).
If you like food with a little spice, add finely diced fresh chilli or chilli flakes at the same time you add the spices.
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
