Slow Cooker Monday Beans and Chicken

No ratings yet

These beans will keep you feeling full all day!

“In Louisiana we love our beans! Beans have always been a staple for Mondays, lots of restaurants still serve them for lunch on Monday. Legend has it that Monday was for Laundry and red beans, this goes way back to when laundry was done by hand and beans could cook on the stove all day with the ham bone from Sunday dinner.

When I got married, my mom gave me several of her slow cooker recipes. I have changed it up and made it more healthy. It’s also very easy, no browning meat or cooking down the onions, it’s a pound of each, beans, meat and seasoning (onions, peppers, celery) and it comes out perfect every time. I hope it passes your test. I’ve done black, white, kidney and 10 bean soup with this recipe.” ~ Troy Hayes
