Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

I think I love my slow cooker!

I know I love my slow cooker! I don’t understand why I haven’t used one until recently. Not to worry. I plan on making up for lost time.

I can’t believe how convenient they are. You basically dump all the ingredients in there, turn it on and forget about it for a few hours. When you come back you have this amazingly delicious dish! How can you not love this?

I also have a confession to make. I’m pretty much a chili making virgin. I think I’ve made it once before, mainly because I’ve always been scared of making thinking it was a lot of work. But this chicken chili is literally a walk in the park, nothing to it. The chicken melts in your mouth, it’s really delicious. The great thing about this recipe, is that you can tweak it to what you have in your pantry and use whatever beans you have, chicken breast, tomato soup, whatever you have. You can add more chili powder, skip the Tex Mex seasoning, whatever strikes you fancy. You cannot go wrong with this recipe.

Did I mention it’s pretty healthy too?

    This might be a silly question, but should the chicken be pre-cooked before going in the crock pot or should it be added raw?

    I don’t have a slow cooker and I don’t know if it’s worth me buying one! They’re probably very expensive here as are most things. I also wouldn’t know what size to buy and I know I split the infinitive! Sorry. Advice please and not about the grammar.

      Hi Judy, I paid $15 for my slow cooker, less than I spend on my some of my pots and pans. I bought the cheapest there is at my local grocery store, because I didn’t know if I was going to be using it much. I bought the smallest one they had because there’s only two of us here, so I don’t need big meals. Not sure where you are but this Proctor Silex 33116Y Portable Oval Slow Cooker, 1.5-Quart is the one I have and it’s 17.99 at amazon.
