I made this tonight. What flavor! I like a little thicker chili so I would cut down some of the liquid next time. Also, I used turkey stock because that is what I had on hand. I also used fresh cilantro instead of the dried and added it at the end of the cooking. Really really good chili!
I am rating this recipe according to my changes, but I am positive that it would be a 5 star if made as stated above. Instead of using chicken breast, I used 1 lb. ground chicken (I had on hand) and cooked with onions, adding salt, pepper, and garlic pepper. I don't care for green peppers, so I left them out. When meat was almost done cooking, I added jalapeno slices. When meat was cooked, I added 1 can chicken broth, 1 can green verde sauce, 1 can rotel, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can tomato paste, 1 Large can precooked chicken, garlic, beans and chili powder. It didn't have enough of a "chili" flavor so I added about 1 Tbs. chili seasoning that I found in the pantry. Served with crackers, jalapenos, and sour cream. AMAZING!
Added some extra peppers, spicy and good!!
