    large sweet potatoes, cut into chunks

Directions

1.Heat the olive oil in a large skillet; season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cilantro over the chicken thighs; brown the chicken in the frying pan, 3 to 5 minutes each side. 2.Arrange the chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the sweet potatoes, red bell pepper, and black beans on top of the chicken. Mix together the chicken broth, 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, salsa, cumin, allspice, and garlic together in a bowl; pour into the slow cooker. Set slow cooker to LOW and cook for 4 hours. Garnish with lime wedges to serve. **Candy says: I used about 2 lbs of thighs and all of the can of broth and 1 1/2 cups of salsa. I also added a can of Mexi-corn. Browned just the chicken seasoned with salt and pepper. Used medium salsa. Tied about 1/2 bunch of cilantro with twine and just buried it in the mixture. Cooked on low about 7 or 8 hours.
