Chicken with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes. Awesome, tasty slow cooker recipe!

My friend made this dish at a birthday party a while back and I have made it several times since.  It is SO tasty and super easy.  You can use bone-in or boneless skinless thighs.  I did not add the red peppers at the end, and it's great with or without the addition of the lime wedges.

I served this at a couple different parties and it goes very far - such a filling dish, with a little salad or bread you will be pleasantly surprised at how many servings you get out of this one recipe.

This was a perfect pairing with Jalapeno Cheese Dip and Green Tea Mojitos!

Shayla...yes! And you can always use a little less sweet potato. I used three large ones.

Stephanie...I love meals like this that you can get started in the morning, then clean house or relax the rest of the day while the smell fills the kitchen!
