Rich chicken chili with just a little kick!

Jerked Chicken Chili from Cosmopolitan Cornbread

This chili is full of flavor, but is quick enough to make on a busy weeknight.
To begin, dice up a yellow bell pepper, and a medium sized onion.

1

Measure out 3 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a half teaspoon of allspice. Set it aside.

2

Cut up 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces. Sprinkle them with some salt & pepper.

4

 

In a Dutch oven, heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over medium heat. Toss in the pepper and onion. Cook them about 2 minutes, or until they are tender.

5

Toss in the chicken, and cook it about 2 minutes, until the chicken is mostly white on the outside. Then stir in the spices.

6

Add in a 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes, and a 14 ounce can of tomato sauce.

7

Next, toss in a 14 ounce can of rinsed and drained black beans and a 14 ounce can of rinsed and drained mixed (pinto/kidney) beans.

8

Pour in a cup and a half of chicken broth. Then toss in some sliced, pickled jalapeno peppers…1 to 2 tablespoons.

10

And finally, toss in a tablespoon of dry cilantro. If you have fresh, use about a quarter cup.

11

Stir this all together, put a lid on, and let it simmer together over medium low heat for about 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Now for the last ingredient….turn off the heat, and stir in 2 tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Trust me.

12

Stir them in until melted.
Serve the chili, topped with some sour cream, grated cheese, or whatever you enjoy. I sided mine with some super-simple Skillet Cheddar Biscuits.
That’s it!

Enjoy!
