5 Step Chicken Chili

February 17, 2015

 Again with this cold weather?!
Since this cold front/blizzard seems to be taking over the country (and I refuse to leave the house because it's freezing), I rifled through the cabinets to find some comfort foot. 

Everything we have in the pantry led me to whip up chicken chili, but you bet your socks this will be the best chicken chili ever!

What makes it so great? It's ready in 5 simple steps.

The directions below are for stove top cooking, but you can throw all of this in the slow cooker on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours. 

Also, you can put the chicken in uncooked, but I'm really weird about that which is why I prefer using the George Foreman grill to cook it first.
