This is my all-time favourite slow cooker recipe . It requires just five minutes or less to put together, and rewards with a delicious healthy and healthy meal at the time of dinner . The burrito bowls consist of chili-spiked brown rice and corn, black beans along with tender bits of chicken shredded . Everything cooks in the pot, so all that you must do is serve yourself a bowl , then top it with cheese.

This recipe is usually prepared in two phases. The first step is to begin cooking the chicken with the tomato juice and diced broth, then I add the rice, beans and corn in the middle of cooking. This will ensure that everything is cooking in the same order and that the beans don’t become too soft. If I’m planning to be absent for a while and will not be at home to cook to the rice dish, then I simply remove it from the cooker in the meantime and heat it in the stove top just prior to serving. It is a bit messy in one pot, but it allows me some flexibility in my cooking schedule .
