I made this soup last month just before traveling to L.A. and forgot to post the recipe until now. This soup was so delicious that I can’t recommend it enough. Please note: the pictures shown seem to hide the fact that this is a soup. There is broth under all of that rice and chicken goodness, I promise!
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
- 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning (or make your own Caribbean rub)
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
- 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup frozen peas (or one can, drained)
- ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- Hot cooked rice
- Fresh cilantro leaves
- Sprinkle chicken evenly with jerk seasoning.
- Heat oil over medium-high heat in a small skillet. Cook onion and garlic for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Spoon onion and garlic to the slow cooker.
- Add chicken to the slow cooker. Pour the broth, adobo sauce, beans, coconut milk, salt and pepper over the chicken.
- Cover; cook on Low for 4-6 hours.
- Remove chicken from slow cooker to plate. Shred/cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and then return chicken to slow cooker. Stir in lime juice and chopped cilantro. To serve, place a scoop of rice in a bowl and pour soup over rice; garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
