Chicken Burrito Bowl made in a slow cooker | One Dish Kitchen

One of my family’s favorite recipes – Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl is a meal I’ve been making for years for my family. Since the original burrito bowl recipe is large enough to serve a family of five, I scaled down the ingredients to make it a single serving meal.

Burrito Bowl

This revamped burrito bowl recipe is full of chili-spiced beans, corn, rice, diced tomatoes, and shredded chicken. Everything cooks together and as it does, the flavors really come alive.

Step 1

Start by mixing together diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chili powder, salt, and cumin and pour it over one chicken breast in the base of your slow cooker or Crock pot.

The chicken cooks in the slow cooker for 3 to 4 hours.

Step 2

Add the black beans, the rice, the corn, and a splash of chicken broth and let the chicken cook for another 3 to 4 hours.

Pro Tip: You can use either instant rice and let the rice cook along with the chicken in the slow cooker or you can cook a small batch of rice on the side.  My recipe for quick baked rice comes in handy for meals like this one.

Since all of the ingredients are cooked in one pot, all you need to do is sprinkle on the cheese, top with slices of avocado or a dollop of sour cream.

For this Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl recipe I use a 1.5 quart slow cooker. For best results, use a slow cooker or Crock pot of similar size.

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl For One

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours
Total Time: 7 hours 10 minutes
Course: Main
Servings: 1 serving
Calories: 392kcal
Author: Joanie Zisk


  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes , with their juices
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth , divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup instant brown rice
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans , drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn
  • Optional toppings: shredded cheese, avocado , chopped cilantro, sour cream


  • Place the chicken breast in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the diced tomatoes, 1/4 cup of the chicken broth, salt, chili powder and cumin. Pour over the chicken. Make sure the chicken is covered, and add additional broth if needed.
  • Cover with the lid and cook for 3 to 4 hours on medium heat *(See notes).
  • Carefully remove the lid and add the rice, beans, corn and remaining 1/4 cup chicken broth. Replace the lid and continue cooking on medium for another 3 to 4 hours.
  • Use two forks to shred the chicken into small pieces.
  • Taste and season with additional salt, if necessary.
  • Spoon into serving bowl and top with cheese and any other desired toppings.


The heat settings on this Party Crock seem to be a little different than the heat settings on my regular slow cooker. With the Party Crock, cooking on a medium temperature worked best.
If using a different brand of slow cooker, cook chicken on low setting for 3-4 hours, add the rice, beans and corn and cook for an additional 3-4 hours on low setting.

  1. Winner winner chicken dinner. Faster and easier to shred chicken breast with portable mixer but definitely another keeper!

  2. Pot roast is my favorite thing to do in the crock pot. As a fairly new Empty Nester, this small crock pot would do wonders allowing me to cook healthier meals for myself.

  3. Thank you so much for listening to your readers! i am excited to see what you come up with for slow cooker recipes for single servings. Yum!

  4. Love your recipes for 1 as can double for he 2 of us… this little slow cooker would be perfect for Hubsters & I!

  5. This looks so delicious! Mexican food is my weakness for sure. I like that you can cook single serve meals in this crockpot! I've been finding it so difficult to cook meals since moving out on my own, but this would be so helpful for me.
