Ingredients

98% fat-free uncooked ground chicken breast

1 pound(s)

uncooked onion(s)

1 large, chopped

green pepper(s)

1 medium, seeded and chopped

garlic clove(s)

3 medium clove(s), chopped

canned kidney beans

31 oz, rinsed and drained

canned pinto beans

15½ oz, rinsed and drained

canned diced tomatoes

14½ oz

chili sauce

12 oz

canned green chili peppers

4½ oz, diced

chili powder

¼ cup(s)

Worcestershire sauce

2 Tbsp

molasses

1 Tbsp

packed brown sugar

1 Tbsp

ground cumin

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic in a slow cooker; stir with a fork to blend. Add the kidney and pinto beans, tomatoes, chili sauce, green chiles, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, brown sugar, and cumin; mix well. Cover and cook until the flavors are blended and the chili thickens slightly, 4–5 hours on high or 8–10 hours on low. Yields 1 1/4 cups per serving.

Notes

Dark-colored seasonings, such as molasses, brown sugar, and chili powder, compensate for the lack of browning of the meat before simmering.
