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 ...

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.

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.

It is more of a topping for chips than chili, but is pretty tasty!

I didn't have any sour cream but it was still yummy!

Extremely easy and very tasty!

This was delicious! I did Cook the chicken myself, but followed the recipe otherwise. It was flavorful and so easy to make!

We thought this was fantastic! I did double the chicken and salsa and added 8oz of tomato sauce and 1 can of Brooke's chili beans in addition to the black beans. Delicious! This will be great ...
