Mexican Chicken Stew

We once served this stew when we had the missionaries over for dinner. Apparently one of the elders liked it so much that he told another elder coming to our ward about it, and it has been requested!

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 T canola oil
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 C frozen corn
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz) reduced-sodium chicken broth {I made my own in this amount}
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies {I used 2 cans of Old El Paso brand; I think their chilies are the best.}
2 T chili powder
1 T ground cumin {I used a bit less b/c I don’t really like cumin)
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cayenne pepper
Whatever you might want to add to your individual serving(s), such as shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions and/or cilantro, etc.
1. In a small skillet, brown chicken in oil.
2. Transfer chicken to a 5-quart slow cooker.
3. Stir in the remaining ingredients. {I just combined them all and then stirred.}
4. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken is no longer pink.
5. Personalize your servings and enjoy!
Yields 6 servings.
