2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut in half
salt and pepper to taste
4 cups of chicken broth
1.5 cups salsa
4 medium yellow squash or zucchini, cut in half (lengthwise) and then cut into chunks about 1/4-1/2 inch thick
1 can black beans (rinsed & drained)
1.5 tbs ground cumin
4 tbs cornstarch
1/2 cup water
In the same skillet, add the broth, salsa, and cumin. Bring to a boil, and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Layer zucchini/squash and black beans on top of chicken and then pour sauce over top of all of it.
Cook for about 7-8 hours on low. About 1/2 hr before serving, dissolve cornstarch into the cold water and then stir into crockpot to thicken it.
** could also stir in some corn and maybe a little more water and would make an awesome soup!! **
** omit the black beans if you are going low-carb **
