Recipe: Chicken Chili

I found a recipe for chicken chili online, but I had to modify it according to the ingredients I had on hand. It turned out so tasty, I just had to share the recipe! Here it is:

Chicken Chili

Ingredients:

3 chicken breasts
1 large cooking onion
1 red pepper
4 hot peppers
1 tsp chopped garlic (or 1-2 cloves, chopped)
1/2 cup hot salsa
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 can each of white kidney beans and romano beans, drained
cayenne, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper
olive oil

Methods:

1. Cut chicken into strips. Heat olive oil in pan on medium-high and add in the chicken. Don't stir right away. Season with cayenne and salt and pepper. Use as much or as little cayenne as you like. Stir and cook through. Set aside and allow to cool.

2. Meanwhile, chop onion and peppers. These are the veggies I had in my fridge. A green pepper would be fine, and any hot peppers would do. I suppose you could even substitute the hot peppers with another sweet pepper, but I feel all chili must have some heat.Saute vegetables with garlic in large pot, until onions are translucent.

3. Add in beans, salsa and broth. Season with chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper ~ use as much as you like, about 1 tbsp of chili powder and pepper, 1 tsp of cumin and a dash of salt. Rip chicken into pieces and mix in.Stir it up and taste it. Add more seasoning if it needs it.

4. Simmer for up to an hour. You can eat it right away if you want, but simmering allows the chili to become even more flavourful.Enjoy!
