Healthy Chicken Chili Recipe

Warming, Healthy Comfort: Spicy Chicken Chili

While there are plenty of vegetarian chili options, sometimes the mood strikes for something a little heartier. Substituting ground chicken for beef brings the same traditional flavors and textures of the classic chili you crave — just lightened up for your healthy diet. This spicy chicken chili seriously hits the spot.

Healthy Chicken Chili Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  2. 1 cup chopped red onion
  3. 1 cup chopped green pepper
  4. 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  5. 2 jalapeños, thinly sliced
  6. 1-1/2 pounds ground chicken
  7. 1/4 cup chili powder
  8. 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  9. 1 tablespoon chicken stock
  10. 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  11. 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  12. 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  13. 1 tablespoon salt
  14. 2 cans dark red kidney beans, drained
  1. To garnish: (optional)
  2. Cilantro

Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven, heat canola oil over high heat. Add onion, pepper, jalapeños, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until the onion is tender (about five minutes.)
  2. Add chicken — cook, stirring to break up lumps until the chicken loses its pink color (about five minutes). Stir in chili powder, and cook one minute.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, broth, sugar, vinegar, hot sauce, and salt. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring often until the chili is thickened (about 45 minutes.)
  4. Stir in beans, cook until heated through, about 15 minutes. Uncover for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
  5. Top with garnish of your choice, and enjoy!
