Chicken Agumba #2

For backstory on the Chicken Agumba meme, see my post, Chicken Agumba #1.

Made a great Chicken Agumba yesterday, in the Crock Pot(TM). Even though I was bleary-eyed and not fully awake, it came out great.

Best guess at the recipe follows.

Chicken Agumba #2
3 or 4 frozen chicken breasts
1/2 can of roasted garlic salsa
a few tablespoons of olive oil (nothing fancy since it was gonna cook all day)
1/2 can of water
1/2 to 1 cup dried white beans
1 large (and we're talking large)onion, medium-to-large dice
Salt to taste

Tossed beans in first, then the liquid, then topped with chicken. Cooked in the crockpot about 8-10 hrs. Had The Mister stir it a couple times during the day.

The dish had a sweet, savory, almost a baked bean-y flavor. It was delicious. I'd add more liquid next time--probably a full can of salsa and a salsa can's worth of water. Maybe part or all of a beer if I had one lying around.
