Chicken and Rice with Black Bean Salsa Recipe

Chicken and Rice with Black Bean Salsa Recipe

I have posted this recipe in a different incarnation by cooking it all in the crockpot. Even though the ingredients are essentially the same, the result is a completely different meal. The chicken cooked in a crockpot can be shredded and used in tortilla shells or eaten with chips. The chicken in this recipe stays whole.  In grilling weather, you can also put these ingredients in tin foil packets and cook them on the grill.
