Crock pot Chicken and Vegetable Chili

Not many things beat walking into your home after a long day at work to the smell of a simmering crockpot. There is something about chilly December months that beckon for hearty and warm dinners with little effort. This recipe is gluten and dairy free, and packs in vitamins among inconspicuous carrots.



5 large carrots-processed or chopped finely

2 cans black beans

2 cans tomato sauce (24oz)

2 organic chicken breasts

1 tbs. garlic salt

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tbs. chili powder

1/2 tsp. black pepper


Place chicken breasts at the bottom of the crockpot. Add in carrots, beans, and tomato sauce over the top and mix with a spoon until blended. Add in cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, and black pepper. Set crock pot on 6-10 hour setting depending on your day and intended dinner time.


Serves 4-6

Enjoy, and make your day great!
