A delicious low-fat chili with a kick! We make it every year for our Halloween block party. You can adjust any of the flavors to your liking and it always turns out fantastic. Top with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. Great when made ahead to let the flavors meld. Freezes well too!

I made this tonight based on the daily recommendations and saw the 5 star rating. Wasn’t until afterwards that I saw it was based on 2 reviews. The chili was good, not great, but good. Minus 2 changes, I followed the recipe as written. I didn’t have white wine, so I used the same amount of a dark beer. I also didn’t feel like measuring 2 cups of picante sauce, so I just used the whole jar. We topped it with sour cream and cheese. I might make it again. Read More

This recipe was great even for left over chicken. I did use more wine than recommended to create more liquid. Personal choice. It was quite delicious. Read More

My wife and I loved this chili. So good. We forgot to pick up sage and didn't have roma tomatoes, so used canned diced tomatoes instead, but it was great anyway. Highly recommend this. My first time having chicken chili, but won't be the last. Read More
