This is a recipe I created when I started my low fat diet. It is very good served in a bread bowl or over the top of a baked potato. This recipe does double well if you would like to make more than two servings.
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons chili powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1⁄2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
- 1⁄2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 -2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 jalapeno, left whole but place 3 to 4 slits in the sides
- 1 -2 bay leaf
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes, chopped undrained
- 1 cup corn (Frozen or Canned)
- 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
- salt and pepper
- Prep chicken and onion.
- Combine first six ingredients in a small bowl or cup and mix well.

This was really nice. Kinda like a soup though not a chili. Will use crushed tomatoes next time for a thicker texture.
Great Flavor!!!! The only thing I did different when I made it was I used a corn starch and water mixture to help thicken the liquid. I like my chili thick. Wonderful Job!!
