One easy chicken chili recipe is the Fast Chicken Chili from MyRecipes.com. This dish is simple to prepare and has a lot of flavor, thanks to savory spices as well as the addition of cilantro and lime.
The recipe calls for the use of a Dutch oven, but this chicken chili can be made in a pot on the stove or in a slow cooker. One pound of boneless chicken breast is cut into bite-sized pieces and cooked in oil for about four minutes. The following ingredients are then added: onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, red pepper and coriander. After sautéing for about three minutes, one cup of water is added, along with a can of chopped green chilis, 3 cups of drained cannellini beans and 14 ounces of chicken broth.
While these ingredients are brought to a boil, another can of chopped green chilis is ground until mashed and added to the soup. After simmering for five minutes, the chili is ready to be served with a sprinkle of cilantro and a lime wedge on the side.
Some reviewers of this recipe suggested using an additional can of beans for people who like thicker chili. Others mentioned that a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of cheese make nice toppings for the dish.
