  7. Add the onion last as it is the softest thing in there.
  8. I cook mine for about 6 hours on High.
  9. It depends on how you like yours, six hours gets all the juices to almost a sauce like consistency.
  10. If you want a more runny chili cook it for 5 hours.
  11. 10 minutes before you serve it, put it in bowls and add tortilla chips and monterey jack cheese on top of it.
  12. Serve with cornbread.

We enjoyed this, using it more for a chips and dip option then the chili, though it'd be good either way (kiddos eat it better with chips :) ) The only thing I would suggest is to keep the chicken breasts whole, then shred them all up. I didn't go for the chunks of chicken, and they were hard to scoop for us with the chips. Very yummy though!

We tried this chili today. It was excellent. The only thing we changed is browning the chicken first and switching from 5 tablespoons chili powder to 4 tablespoons.
