No-Time-Flat Chicken Chili: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
The spices, chicken and beans in this dish make a substantial combination. Add rice and a green salad to make a scrumptious meal.


  • Spice Blend1/4 cup mild chili powder
  • 1 Tbs ground cumin
  • 2 Tbs dried oregano, crumbled between the fingers
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Chili2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 (7 ounce) can diced mild chilies, undrained
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs jarred minced garlic
  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken chunks, skin removed
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 1 (15 ounce can) kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 (15 ounce can) pinto beans, undrained
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can fat-free less-sodium chicken broth (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro


  • Spice BlendMix the ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • ChiliLightly coat a Dutch oven with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to soften, about 4 minutes. Lower the heat to medium, add chiles, tomato paste, garlic, and spice blend, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the chicken, tomatoes, beans, and broth, stir well and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Turn the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the cilantro and serve.

Variation: Chili powders are blends of spices, so try different brands to find the ones you like.

Cooking Tip: The spices in this dish are double-developed: once when they cook with the onion, pepper, chilies, and tomato paste, and again when they simmer away in the pot.

Nutrition Note: The beans, tomatoes, and chicken put this on my "good-for-you" list.

Serving Suggestion: Leftover chili pairs with a 28 ounce tube of polenta to make a great chili pie. Lightly coat an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 3 cups of chili into the pan. Top with 1/2-inch-thick slices of polenta and sprinkle with 2 cups already-shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake in a 350 F oven until the filling is bubbly and the cheese melts.
