I almost never eat "red meat" so this chili with chicken instead of beef became a very good alternative. Can also be made with red beans, kidney beans, chickpeas or whatever you fancy.

I loved this clever twist on chicken chili, cinnamon and ginger were welcome additions. I also loved the addition of the mushrooms, in mt case creminis. I omitted the flour in order to make this consistent with the WW core program and found the sauce thickened nicely without it. Half way through the cooking time, found I wanted stronger flavors and added some extra cumin and pepper. Delicious.
