  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans pinto beans (15 oz each drained)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (10 oz)
  • 1 can Tomato sauce (15 oz)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • optional toppings- cheese, sour cream, and tortilla strips


  • In a large stock pot or dutch oven, cook cubed chicken over medium heat in one tablespoon of oil. Season lightly with minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Depending on the size of your cubed chicken, it may take 5-10 minutes to cook your chicken. It is ok if the chicken is still slightly pink on the inside as it will continue to cook with your chili.
  • When your chicken is done, pour in beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, corn, chicken broth and chili powder. Stirring until well combined.
  • Simmer (with the lid on) for 15-20 minutes or until all ingredients are heated through.
  • Serve warm with your favorite toppings and enjoy!


*Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5-7 days. 
*The chili toppings are not included in the nutritional information.
