Chicken Chili Recipe
By popular request I am posting the Chili recipe that we made this past weekend. 4 15 oz. Cans of Stewed Tomatoes 1-2 Cans Kidney Beans 3-4 Stocks of Celery 1 Medium Sized Yellow Onion 1 Green Bell Pepper 3 Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, Ground Cayenne(Red Pepper), Garlic Salt, White Pepper, and Ground Cumin are all used. No Specific measurements though. It just depends on how spicy you want it. The longer you let it simmer with all of those spices, the HOTTER it will get. Start by Baking the chicken at 350 deg. 30-45 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and a little white pepper if you like it spicy. While that cooks, finely chop Onion, Bell Pepper and Celery. Saute them in 2-4 Tbsp of butter in large pot until Celery is soft. (the peppers and onion will soften before the celery will) Add all cans of tomatoes and 1 can of water. Be sure the tomatoes get broken into bite size pieces, most are sold just sliced. Rinse Kidney beans thoroughly in strainer and add to pot. Stir together and start adding seasoning. Once you have your desired taste, simmer for just a bit. While simmering, chop chicken in to small cubes and add to mix. Simmer all together at least 10 minutes. Keep in mind that the longer it simmers, the hotter it will become if you have used all the spices. I prefer it HOT and usually would let it simmer for a couple hours. It is best with shredded cheese mixed in to your individual bowl and served with either scones, or buttered toast with honey. Enjoy!!!
