Easy Sweet and Spicy Rotisserie Chicken Chili
Love that slow cooked chili taste but want it quicker? Here is the solution: rotisserie chicken chili! Super easy, super fast, and darn tasty! Great for summer too as the chicken is much lighter than heavy beef chili.
I’m not sure why I never thought of this before…but after seeing a friend do this I thought “well duh!” Most grocery stores today have a selection of rotisserie chickens that are actually pretty good. Our local Shaws carries them all the time and most Fridays they have the $5 special which includes a free bottle of water along with the whole chicken.
With the ease of the chicken already being cooked, this homemade chili takes only a few minutes to put together and then can be put on the stove for a fast meal or in the crock-pot until you are ready to eat.
Remove all of the chicken meat from the carcass and put in the crock-pot.
Next add your desired chili ingredients. For our chicken chili I wanted something sweet and spicy. I added a can of kidney beans, diced tomatoes, a small can of jalapenos, baked beans (this is what gives the chili a sweetness that is really good), corn, and tomato sauce. For my dry spices I added chili powder, smoked paprika, and taco seasoning (about 2 tablespoons of each).
Let it cook for as long as you would like – mine was in the crock-pot for about 3 hours, but you could speed up the process by putting it in a pot on the stove for about an hour.
