This chicken chili recipe comes together in about 30 minutes and uses an ingredient you may not consider picking up from your grocery store. Canned chicken. I used Keystone Meats in my segment, and they can be found in Meijer, Walmart and Kroger brand stores across the country. If you have the time, you can swap it out with chicken breasts or thighs (my preference) and just add about 10 more minutes to your cook time.

The sky is the limit with the toppings you can adorn your bowl of chicken chili with. Sour cream, jalapenos, tortilla strips, cheese, cilantro, lime wedges – you choose! I know that as the weather is cooling off quickly here in Chicago (it snowed in central Illinois by the way) I’m yearning even harder for hearty soups and stews, and this chili hits the spot.

Canned chicken, chicken broth, corn, northern beans, green chiles, and seasonings are all you’ll need, and I’m pretty positive that they’re easy to find at your nearest grocery store. The recipe that I’m sharing will serve 3 hearty chili eaters or smaller ones – you know, like the ones who live with me.

While the recipe is straightforward, I’m going to encourage you to make this chili your own. Make sure to dress it up as you sit down at your table and enjoy. Or if you’re like me, curl up with it while watching a good movie. It fills you up!

    All the yums! We’re still waiting for it to cool off here in South Carolina but this is definitely going to be one of the recipes we break out when it does.

      I’m going to try and add in some heavy cream to get a creamier base and report back!
