    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    (or a pound or so of turkey breast cutlets, sliced into pieces)
    1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 12-oz jar roasted red peppers (not in oil), undrained
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies, undrained
    1 large onion, chopped
    Salt and pepper, if desired (I use 1/2 teaspoon each


Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Add chicken or turkey (brown first if desired). Cut up roasted red peppers into large bite-sized pieces. Combine peppers with remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken. Cook low for about 6 hours or high about 3 1/2 hours.

*Note: You can sear the meat in a pan first for extra flavor if you wish. In Phase 2, you can serve this over brown rice. This dish is not spicy, but you can make it spicy by adding some chopped hot peppers or freeze-dried hot pepper flakes. You can also add some sliced zucchini, as there's plenty of broth in which it can cook, and it would add color and extra nutrition. You can also replace the black beans with about 12 ounces of fresh green beans if desired.
