Try this easy, and tasty, crock-pot creation:
Crock-pot Chicken Chili
Makes a big pot (8 or more servings )

Here’s what I like about this recipe, you just dump stuff in!
- Turn crock-pot on, low setting.
- Pour in diced and crushed tomatoes.
- Pour in Chili seasoning.
- Stir well.
- Place chicken thighs into crock-pot (don’t cut them, put them in whole)
- Stir again.
- Put the top on the pot and walk away.
- Come back 15 minutes before you want to serve the chili.
- Stir to break up chicken.
- Rinse the beans and corn.
- Pour beans and corn into pot and stir
- Replace lid and continue to cook for 15 minutes.
- Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of cilantro — and maybe some whole grain rolls!
Remember to store left overs in glass or ceramic containers, not plastic.
