High-Protein Chicken Chili

High-Protein Chicken Chili

Comfort food!!! Yum

Ingredients:

  • Coconut Oil, 2 tbsp 
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces, bone and skin removed 
  • 1 large Onion, chopped  
  • 1 Green Bell Peppers, chopped (sub any color bell peppers you’d like) 
  • 4 cloves Garlic, chopped 
  • Pinto Beans,  3 cups cooked* 
  • Chili powder, 3 tbsp 
  • Garlic powder, 1 tbsp 
  • Tomato Sauce, 3.5 cup

* I use home-made beans of my choice in this recipe (Slow-Cooker Pinto Bean recipe). However, canned, rinsed beans can be used instead. I recommend making beans in large quantities and freezing them for use in recipes such as this one for a quick, healthful meal.

Cooking Instructions:


Saute chicken in coconut oil over med-low heat until cooked through. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic and saute until onions are translucent. Add tomato sauce, pinto beans, and remaining spices and simmer for 15+ minutes. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to three days.
