Healthy Slow Cooked Chicken

Slow cookers are amazing for cooking meat. The long process makes the meat so tender and tear apart so easily and really locks in the flavours. This recipe has everything you are looking for in a healthy slow cooked chicken meal.

For this recipe, you will need:

– Chicken (I used chicken breast)
– Salsa (enough to cover the chicken)
– Beans (You can use your favourite beans – pinto, mixed, kidney beans etc)
– A slow cooker
