I’m withdrawaling from cymbalta and haven’t had the energy to cook let alone eat. But today for some reason I woke up at 6am and had a small amount of energy. So I grabbed some chicken and spices and threw together a meal in my crockpot.
God bless crock pots.
So here’s a really easy recipe that you can throw together when you don’t have time to cook or like me- have pain from fibro & cymbalta withdrawal and just can’t get out of bed.
1 lb chicken thighs
1 can black beans (rinsed)
1 can white beans (rinsed)
1 can corn (rinsed)
1 packet of chili seasoning
1 can diced tomatoes & green chilis
3 cups of water
3 chicken bouillon cubes
Handful of fresh cilantro
Add 3 cups of hot hot hot water with 3 chicken bouillon cubes. Rinse chicken and add to water. Cover and leave on high for 2 hours.
Once the chicken has cooked- remove the chicken and set aside. Stir in the chili powder. Next add beans, corn, tomatoes and chilis, and cilantro. Stir. Mmm. It smells so good.
Next- tear or shred the chicken into pieces and put it in the crock pot. Stir. Again.
Cook on low for 2-4 hours and serve. We like to it top off sour cream and cheese. And there’s dinner. Probably even some easy to reheat leftovers.
