DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté the chicken breasts in the olive oil in a large pot over medium/high heat.
  • Cook the chicken on both side until done-- about 7-10 minutes per side.
  • Cool the chicken until it can be handled.
  • Do not rinse the pot.
  • Shred the chicken by hand into bite-sizes pieces and place the pieces back into the pot.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and turn heat to high.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 hours.
  • Stir mixture often so that many of the chicken pieces shred into much smaller bits.
  • Chili should reduce substantially to thicken and darken (less orange, more brown) when done.
  • Combine some chopped Italian parsley with sour cream and serve it on the side for topping the chili, if desired.
