  • 1 onion, diced

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tin whole peeled diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Cajun or Mexican spice mix
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tin mild chilli beans
  • Sea salt & cracked pepper
  • Nacho chips, to serve
  • Sour cream, to serve
  • Grated cheese, to serve
  • Salsa, to serve
  1. Combine onion, garlic, chicken, tomatoes, spices, sweet chilli sauce and seasoning in a Crock-Pot, slow cooker or heavy lidded casserole dish.
  2. Cook for 3-4 hours at 160oC in the oven or 4-5 hours on medium in the slow cooker until the chicken is tender. Shred the chicken pieces with a fork, then add the beans and heat through.
