Not sure exactly what to call this creation… other than yummy! Jason mentors class this week, so I’m on my own for dinners. our pantry is pretty stocked but with random items I’ve mostly picked up when I had a good coupon. I had sliced pineapples, black beans, pineapple salsa & frozen chicken breats. So I decided I throw them into the crockpot & hope it worked~ and it did! I’m having the leftovers for lunch today.
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can sliced pineapples
1 jar Newman’s Own pineapple salsa
3 boneless skinless chicken breats
couple shakes of garlic powder
couple shakes of jerk seasoning
Rice-a-roni Fajita Rice
Add half the salsa and chicken to crockpot. Top with seasoning. Add pineapples (I did with the juice but could do without), beans and rest of salsa. Here’s what mine looked like after I threw it all in. The top photo is after I opened the lid about to grub!
I cooked for 7 hours on low. This made the chicken easy to shred but not really falling apart which would work if you wanted to just eat the chicken by itself. I then made the rice following directions from the box. I built burritos by shredding the chicken, adding it and the beans/pineapple/salsa mixture, rice and cheese to a microwaved warm tortilla. So good! Hope you enjoy!
