Crockpot Chicken Chili

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

This is another quick weeknight meal thanks to the Crockpot.  This one is low fat and really tasty.  It is great served with chips and guacamole (though this makes it less “low fat”)!


3 medium carrots, sliced
1 medium red pepper, chopped into 3/4-inch pieces
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
and cut in half
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
1 15-ounce can no-salt-added corn, drained
1 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 16-ounce jar salsa
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 Tbs Chili Powder
1 Tbs Cumin


Put carrots and peppers at bottom of the crockpot, followed by chicken.  Add corn, kidney beans and salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Serves 4-6
