Chunky Chicken 3 Bean Chili

Nor M.


I'm trying to eat a little healthier lately. I decided to make a chili with ground chicken breast. You may use regular ground chicken found in the grocery store. This chili is chunky and has just a hint of heat. My family and I loved it. Serve topped with Mexican cheese. Serve with Tortilla chips if desired.
