OPW: One Pot Wonders
Onion, celery, one can diced tomato, 2/3 to 1 cup quinoa, packet of chili seasoning (I use reduced sodium), 1 lb chicken breast tenderloins, 1 or 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed, 4 to 5 cups chicken broth
Throw it all in the slow cooker, on high for up to four hours. Pull out the chicken and shred; add a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Stir, make sure beans are heated through.
My slow cooker wasn't quite big enough for the original portions, so I had to cut back on the quinoa and stock. It's pretty delicious and reasonably heathy, and easy to make vegetarian.
Serve with Fritos :-)
