Chicken and A Black Bean Salad

Last night I adapted a pinterest recipe. It turned out well. I will try to update with a picture or two tomorrow. The recipe was simple- 2 pounds of chicken 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 cup pineapple juice 1/3 cup lite soy sauce Cook in crockpot for 6-8 hours. It was really tender, slightly citrusy and sweet. If I hadn't been cooking for another family as well I might have added a little red pepper or pepper sauce to add another layer of flavor. We served it with a salad made from canned black beans, chopped tomatoes, frozen corn, red onion, and avocado. It was lightly seasoned with salt and tossed with a little fresh lime juice. You could add cilantro and/or queso fresco if you wanted it extra fancy. Enjoy!
