Healthy One-Pot Chicken Chili


This Healthy One-Pot Chicken Chili takes only 30 minutes to cook and tastes like a cool-weather dream! Whatever the season, everyone who tastes this chili will be going back for more.

K, I can’t guarantee the fuzzy fleece, but you can have satisfying bowls of delicious chili on the table in 30 minutes.
This healthy one-pot chicken chili requires only one big pot and the amount of minutes it takes to watch a sitcom…
We make this healthy one-pot chicken chili in a jiffy by using something we almost always have on hand – rotisserie chicken. Just shred a rotisserie chicken from your favorite grocery store, and you’re halfway there.
I prefer to chop my own bell peppers and onions, but you can absolutely use the pre-chopped tri-pepper blends from the produce section of most grocery stores.
Toss in some fantastic seasonings, and give the whole thing a quick simmer.
Top with your favorite toppings and you’re done – soup’s on.
Crispy corn tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and fresh herbs makes it look and taste like you worked on this thing.
Big bowls are a must. Slippers and jammies optional but highly recommended.
