  • 1 pound beans dry, soaked overnight, any variety
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups green bell pepper chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cups chicken broth low-sodium
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 2 bay leaves


  • Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on low 7 hours. If thicker broth is desired, use a spoon to mash up some beans against the side of the pot before serving.
  • Serve over brown rice or as a soup.


TIP: For a vegetarian option, simply use vegetable broth and omit the chicken. Increase spices for more flavor if desired
