Spicy Chicken Chili

Spicy Chicken Chili

I followed this recipe to make this dish – I did add 1/2 cup water to make it a little less thick.  Very good!



1 lb lean ground chicken

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 can black beans

4 oz onion

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup water – more or less depending on how thick you want it.


1. In a sauce pan cook your lean ground chicken till fully cooked. Drain grease and set aside.

2. In a separate pan (or use the same pan from your chicken and clean it before using it) and cook your onions. You will not be sauteing them. The less fat in this dish the better. Cook onions till brown.

3. Once your onions are cooked, place chicken back into pan. Add your tomatoes, black beans (don’t drain them because the juice from the black beans will help thicken your chili), and spices and water. Stir until mixed. Place a lid over the top and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
