I've been learning to love one pot, slow cook meals lately, and this southwest-inspired chicken dish is one of the results.

It's easy to prepare and tasty to eat. I'm happy because I can put it on in the morning and have it ready for lunch or for dinner, depending on how high I cook it.

Just prepare some rice, and you're ready for an easy, delicious dinner.
