Today I’m sharing this easy slow cooker shredded BBQ chicken and beans recipe. It’s great for work lunches and goes perfectly with homemade burrito bowls, jacket sweet potatoes and tortillas!
Shredded BBQ chicken & beans (gluten free & dairy free)
Over the past couple of month I’ve have a few emails from some of my clients who are struggling to get inspired by food and have found themselves eaten the same thing over and over again so I decided to put more effort into getting some of my favourite recipes on here so I can give you guys some ideas to start cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
I’m a big believer in spending an hour or so on a Sunday prepping food for the coming week – especially lunches as being strictly gluten free means that it’s difficult for me to grab a healthy lunch on the go! My slow cooker is probably my second most-used kitchen item (after my NutriBullet) and if you haven’t got one then I seriously recommend purchasing one – they’re not even very expensive – mine only cost £25!
Let me know if you give this recipe a try and don’t forget you can share any of your acne friendly recipes on Instagram using the hashtag #SkynApproved!
