Wild West Chicken Chili

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Gerald Audette

This is a variation of a chili recipe in which I use Chicken instead of ground beef. I usually make two batchs and freeze individual servings in 1 cup containers. I usually use them up in lunches.

I made this recipe, though was somewhat loose with the measurements, using more beans, peppers, mushrooms, and ground meat than called for... since I used this to sort of clean out my fridge and cabinets. I also used the chicken breasts but used ground turkey (vs. ground chicken) because that's what I had on hand. It still came out absolutely wonderful and I will most definitely make this again.
