Slow Cooked Mexican Chicken Recipe



1kg Chicken Breast –skinless

810g Tinned Crushed Tomatoes

439g Tinned Black Beans – well rinsed

½ cup Red Capsicum – finely chopped

2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste

1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice

1 Teaspoon crushed Garlic – I just use the jar one

2 Teaspoons Paprika – the “Smoked” one is not hot at all

Salt & Pepper to taste



  • Place in Slow Cooker the Tomatoes, Garlic, Paprika and Salt & Pepper.
  • Rinse off your Chicken and add to the Slow Cooker.
  • Put the Cooker on High for 3-4 hours till Chicken is tender and cooked through.
  • Take out the Chicken and shred with a knife and fork set aside.
  • To the Slow cooker add your Lime, chopped Capsicum and Black Beans and stir through.
  • Add the Chicken back into the Slow Cooker and stir through.
  • Leave for another half hour before serving.

Serving is really versatile I serve with rice for the kids and for the adults I like to serve with burritos on a big serving dish heaped on top of a bed of baby spinach with slice Avocado and lots of chilli jam.
