The night before, I jsauteed up some peppers and an onion. Then the next morning I dumped a can of white beans, a half bag of frozen corn, and the peppers and onion into the bottom of a slow cooker. I topped that with two frozen chicken breasts. 1 carton of chicken stock, and some spices. Then I went off my merry way to work, and let the slow cooker do the rest. When I came home my kitchen smelled amazing and dinner was already made! What's better than that?
