Quick and easy chicken chili for the whole family. Serve plain or over rice. Top with tortilla strips, shredded cheese, sour cream, plain yogurt, and/or green onions. Could also be served over tortilla chips for a great nacho dish. Red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, or chili seasoning mix can also be used to season.

My boyfriend's top favourite food is chili but I really don't enjoy it much. We compromised on making a chicken chili instead and he very much enjoyed this recipe. It's not thick like a chili though we just used it as a dip for chips. Otherwise very good.? Read More

I made this with just a few changes adding refried black beans fresh salsa and a can of corn. I boiled 2 small chicken breasts then cut up and added to the skillet. I added 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 tsp Cumin and 1 tsp. Chili Powder for flavor. It was very quick and easy to throw together in a hurry but satisfying. This would be good as a topping for brown rice. Tortilla chips on the top made for a nice crunch. Read More

For the time and simplicity in making this chili it is quite respectable. How well you like this chili will be determined by the quality of the salsa you use. Read More

We loved the chili but I found it needed about twice as much salsa and 8 oz. Of tomato sauce. Otherwise it was too dry. We like rotisserie chicken and that made it good. Read More
