This Super easy and slightly spicy Chicken Chili Recipe is filling, comforting and zero points on Weight Watcher’s Freestyle Program.
If you are not on WW, or if you want to make a delicious side dish for the family, it goes very well with my easy cornbread recipe from scratch. I love that I can serve this as a hearty, flavorful chili and no one even cares that it just happens to work with my WW plan.
Hello Friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. This one went especially fast, maybe because we had long weekend last week or maybe it was because my husband left on Sunday for a business trip.
We did manage to see the Black Panther movie this weekend and I loved it. Lots of action, suspense and even a little bit of a love story. The special effects were really good too and I can see why it got a 97% on Rotton Tomatoes. Since it was chilly this weekend, I decided to make some Chicken Chili.
I honestly make this chili a little different from time to time, and this is my slightly spicy version (especially good on a cold evening). It is also zero points on the new weight watcher system (until you top it with cheese). Either way, it makes for an easy chicken chili recipe that comes together in one pot.
The smell of the chili cooking is just all kinds of comfort.
It is also perfect for a sports viewing or tailgating party!

It is really not all that spicy, in case you are wondering. Just enough to add a little heat. I hope you enjoyed this easy recipe idea! We strive to be your resource for easy recipes and tips to make the most of your time.
I make this chili year-round.
