Slow Cooker Latin Chicken W/ Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Chef Romie

From Good Housekeeping magazine. I am cooking it right now, so I haven't tried it, but it sounds so good! I substituted chicken breasts for the thighs and 1/2 tsp of chipotles in adobo for the paprika.

Have tried this with chicken and pork and think the pork is better. Made it on the stove top and added onions and a bit more stock so the sweet potatoes were just covered.
