Chicken Burrito Bowl

With a busy toddler running around and me working a lot of evenings, the crock pot has become a must have at our house to make healthy dinners happen with significantly less frustration.  My husband's favorite crock pot meal is the chicken burrito bowl.  Bonus - the kids all like it too!  This is one of the easiest meals to make.

1.5# boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 cans black beans - drained and rinsed
1 can corn - drained and rinsed
1 jar salsa of your choice
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp cumin powder
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 cup water/chicken broth/veggie broth
brown rice or quinoa

Optional Toppings:  cheese, sour cream, guacamole, fresh cilantro

1.  Place chicken in bottom of crock pot.  Add remainder of ingredients, except rice/quinoa and stir.  Make sure chicken remains covered.  Cook on low for 8 hours.  After chicken mixture is cooked, shred chicken with two forks and then mix all ingredients well.

2.  Cook brown rice or quinoa according to package directions.

3. Put rice in each bowl and top with chicken mixture and desired toppings.

That's all there is to it.  Even my twins can make this one so long as they have help measuring.

Makes great leftovers too!
