    Simple to make and very tasty while being low in fat.  -  20 Apr 2016


    The first person to taste this chili asked for the recipe! I did make the following changes and additions...3 chicken breasts instead of 4, 1 can of diced green chilis, 2 teaspoons fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder, 16 ounce can of diced tomatoes, and 2 teaspoons sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. OTHERWISE, this was a great recipe and will be added to my winter repertoire! Thanks.  -  14 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe has become a staple in my house. I find that simply throwing it all in together in one step turns out just as good. I cook on low for 8 hours, and then just stir. The chicken just falls apart. I add some cayenne for a kick. Very yummy.  -  13 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
