sliced limes, avocado, sour cream and tortilla chips, to serve (optional)
Rinse and sort the navy beans (removing any small rocks, etc.) Place into the bottom of a 6-quart crock pot.
In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat and brown the chicken on both sides. Place chicken on top of the navy beans in the slow cooker.
Chop the onions and celery and add to the same skillet that you cooked the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat then add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Add the garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, oregano and black pepper. Stir to combine.
Stir in the jalapeños and stock and bring to a boil.
Pour mixture into the crock pot on top of the chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
Remove chicken from crock pot and shred then add the cilantro and serve.
You can use any chicken on hand, we use chicken breasts but you can also use thick thighs. If in a pinch you can use shredded rotisserie chicken, but since it's cooked add it at the end to warm through.
Top this with any of your favorite toppings that would complement this dish well such as avocados, limes, sour cream, etc.
Thicken this dish my smashing some of the beans using a potato masher, the starch in the beans will thicken this up nicely.
You can adjust the seasonings to your liking, these are the measurements that we like, but feel free to make it your own.
Canned navy beans can be used. I would recommend using two cans for this recipe. Just switch them out with the dried beans.
I use a combination of fresh garlic and garlic powder. I like the depth of flavor that it adds. But feel free to use all fresh garlic or all garlic powder rather than a combination.
