Hearty Chicken Chili Crock Pot

"This is a regular and favorite in my family. It was out of a crock pot magazine I saw on the shelves one day and I've been loving it ever since. It's easy to make, and is a great combination of healthy and comfort food. I am typing it as is in the magazine, but I personally don't use the jalapeno pepper, any extra salt and I use salt-free chicken broth. No one seems to notice anything missing. We try keep the sodium low for the most part, but to each their own! =D"

  1. Made this for Fall PAC Orphanage tag game and this was delicious!!! I did cut this recipe in half, used the flour for a slurry to thicken a little and used leftover turkey instead of chicken which I seasoned a little before adding later in the cooking process...definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.
  2. Suprisingly my DH really enjoyed this. At first he and his brother were like this is not chili! Then they tasted it. Yep they ate it too. I did leave out the jalepeno pepper (taste bud thingy) and did use the flour in a slurry to thicken a bit. What a healthy chili recipe and different. I will put this on the winter rotation as it went over well witrh the "boys" and make this again for their hunting season at the MAN CAVE. What a lovely recipe. Made for my PAC BABY.


I love to cook for those who love my cooking!
