Make the consistency of the chili as thick as you want. Simmering the chili on low for 20-30 minutes will really bring out the flavors, but it will be on the thick side. So add additional water during the simmer to the thickness that you want.


  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion , minced
  • 3 cloves Garlic , minced
  • .75 pound chicken breast or cutlets , cut into small bite sized pieces.
