I cannot take credit for this recipe, but I WILL say it was well received. My husband decided to try this so-called Slow Carb Diet. He had me trolling all over the Internet looking for recipes and such. Ironically, he was the one who found this recipe and suggested that I give it a try.

I personally think it's odd to have chunk chicken in chili, but that's just me. My husband and oldest son RAVED about it after I finished and said it was better than my usual version. So I thought I'd share!

Ingredients

3 medium
cubed, skinless chicken breast halves (i used 4 large cans of chunk chicken i was saving to make chicken salad with)
1 medium
diced onion
2 clove
minced garlic (i used 2tbs from a jar)
2 Tbsp
olive oil (or whatever you have on hand)
2 medium
bell peppers (one red, one green)
2 can(s)
15oz canned stewed tomatoes (i used 1 large can and 1 regular can)
1 can(s)
15oz pinto beans (i used 2 cans)
3/4 c
picante sauce (i used a little over 1 cup)
1 1/2 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
chili powder

**NOTE: THIS RECIPE CALLS FOR 1/2 TEASPOON OF SALT, BUT I OMITTED IT BECAUSE CHILI POWDER ALREADY HAS SALT IN IT. I LIKE TO KEEP OUR SODIUM AS LOW AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT SACRIFICING TASTE. BUT IT'S UP TO YOU...

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Saute chicken, onions, bell peppers and garlic in a large sauce pan until chicken is fully cooked (in my case, this step didn't take so long since the chicken was already cooked). Add everything else to the pot and simmer for 20 minutes.

EASIEST DISH EVER!! Add some cornbread and a salad and you've got a good meal!

Enjoy!
