Number of Servings: 6


    2 tablespoons canola oil
    2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 medium onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
    2 teaspoons chile powder (I use Penzy's 3000)
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon Kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 tablespoons flour
    1.5 cups chicken broth
    15 ounces diced tomatoes (preferably fire-roasted)
    15 ounces canned white beans
    1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
    1/2 teaspoon tomato paste (I use sun-dried)
    1 ounce bittersweet chocolate (60%)


Heat the oil in a skillet and brown the chicken. Transfer to the slow cooker.

Add the onions and saute until translucent. Add the flour and spices, stir to coat onions, and cook about another minute to warm the spices. Add the broth and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Transfer everything to the slow cooker. Add the beans and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

When ready to serve, remove the chicken and shred. Return chicken to the slow cooker, reduce the heat to warm, add the chocolate and stir to melt and combine. Serve.

    I am actually cooking this right now. The recipe doesn't say when to add the garlic, tomato paste or anchovy paste. I added the garlic with the onions and the tomato paste and anchovy paste withe the tomatoes and broth. Use a pot to allow room for all the ingredients to simmer. - 11/23/11
