Submitted by: BETRME100

Quick preparation allows me to throw this in the slow cooker before work and have dinner ready when I get home. Just add a salad. Quick preparation allows me to throw this in the slow cooker before work and have dinner ready when I get home. Just add a salad.

    Used a whole chicken and added onion, Black Soy Beans, Garlic and some left over Chicken Broth. It needed a healthy (?) dose of salt, and definitely more seasoning. It will be a work in progress. - 10/22/10

    Excellent recipe. I omitted the salt (I never use salt) and added a little bit of hot sauce. Lots of fiber, which is always a good thing. So easy. Thx - 10/12/10

    Everyone (hubby, 4 kids ages 2-14 & I) liked it! I'll only use 1 can of beans next time as they didn't eat very many. I also think I forgot the water but worked and was yummy! THANKS! - 5/2/10

  • I changed it little. I used 4 medium carrots, a handful of sliced portabellas, a medium tomato, substituted a can of garbanzos, used 2 chicken breasts sliced lenghthways. Only used 3/4 C water. Also added about a tsp of chicken bullion. Cooked on low on stove for 3 hours. Ate over brown rice. - 6/2/13
