With temperatures going down there is nothing like a hot, good meal to keep you warm! Try this recipe for some very delicious homemade spicy chicken chili!
You will need the following ingredients:
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 pound boneless chicken strips
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 jalapeno peppers (If you don’t want it too spicy I recommend removing the seeds!)
1 ½ cups canned crushed tomatoes with their juice
2 ½ cups canned chicken broth or homemade stock
1 ⅔ cups drained pinto beans
1 ⅔ cups drained black beans
1 ½ teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
Optional: ⅓ cup chopped cilantro
- In a large saucepan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and garlic-cook until they start to soften, about 3 minutes.
- Increase the heat to moderate and stir in the chicken strips. Cook until they are no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt, Add the jalapenos, the tomatoes with their juice, and the broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover , and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Uncover the saucepan and stir in the beans and black pepper. Simmer until the chili is thickened, about 15 minutes longer. Serve in a deep bowl and top with cilantro.
- If you love bread like I do, cornbread is always a good complement for this chili!
Stay warm and enjoy.
