This zesty south-western chicken and bean recipe comes together quickly for a better-than-average weeknight meal on Day 5. The added fiber from the beans is filling and nutritious.

1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash® Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend

cooking spray
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, shredded
2 tablespoons canned jalapeno peppers, diced

Slow Cooker Garlic & Thyme Chicken Thighs
Take the guesswork out of Day 5 dinner when you throw this in the slow cooker first thing in the morning. The sweet orange and balsamic sauce gives new life to the standard boneless skinless chicken. And the aroma is simply delectable.

6 (4-ounce) frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1-2 tablespoons bottled minced garlic
1 1/2-teaspoons dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 oranges, sliced

Place frozen chicken thighs in a 3½ to 4-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl whisk together the garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, orange juice, and balsamic vinegar and pour over chicken thighs. Cover and set to low-heat for 6 to 8-hours or high-heat for 2 to 4-hours. Just before serving strain juices into a 1-quart saucepan and bring to a boil to reduce liquid. Boil gently, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until reduced to about 1 cup. Serve 1 thigh topped with 1 tablespoon sauce and orange slices. Nutrition: Serves 6. Per serving: 178 calories, 34 grams protein, 4 grams fat, 5 grams carbohydrate.
