We make this at our house too & love it... I did make some changes to suit our tastes. We use chicken cubed instead of ground & We also add a jar of northern beans drained.

I modified this to my taste and used boneless chicken breast vs. ground chicken. I used crumbled bleu cheese and celery as garnish instead of the tortillas. Made it spicier and more garlicky. It was tied in first place in the chili cook off I entered. (I'm not sure what I'll do with the second Crock-Pot I won...) This is a great base recipe.

I agree with other posts. It's okay, but it's missing something. I made it with 1 pound ground chicken and 2 cans drained northern beans because I just feel chili needs beans, and I stirred in a tablespoon of bleu cheese into each bowl served. Still, it tasted like spicy tomato soup. Kinda boring.

We made this out of a Rachel Ray cookbook and I was going to post the recipe, but now I don't have to! It was fantastic! We used one pound of chicken tenders, and added garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and more paprika. We just stirred the blue cheese into the chili and crumbled the chips in--no broiling for us! I will definitely do it that way again because the blue cheese added a lot of depth to the chili.

Yum! This was a fabulous chili - a very clever recipe! This chili really does taste like chicken wings, complete with celery! Due to some shopping list confusion, I unfortunately had to make a substitution and use chicken breast instead of ground chicken, but it still tasted great! We don't care for blue cheese, so I melted grated sharp cheddar onto the tortilla chips. We will definitely make this again! Thanks, barefootmommawv! Made for My3Chefs 2008.

This has great flavor! The bleu cheese corncakes complement the chili perfectly; I wouldn't want one without the other. Very easy to make, though I had to substitute ground turkey as my grocery store does not have ground chicken.

The bleu cheese chips make the dish, but it's good and healthy without them as well.

This recipe was also in Rachael Ray's magazine and I thought it sounded good and made it then. I didn't really enjoy it as I thought it needed something else, but didn't know what.
