Good Morning Crock Pot: Chicken Chili

There are few things making my life easier than having supper ready in the morning. My Mom has been telling me, all 4.5 years of my marriage, to plan ahead meals to save on the stress of "what's for dinner?". It sounds easy enough, but I go in phases where I am super cook one week and the next week we are having pizza every other night.

While crock pot meals can get old, trying something new in the crock pot is very exciting! I found a recipe for chicken chili via Photo a Day a few months ago. I found a bag of peppers: yellow, orange, and red for $.89 at Bob's and thought I could use them up for the recipe. I scooped them up and chose to do the chili today so I could use them before they went bad.

Here I am at 8:30 this morning, cooking crock pot chili, and the kids eating pancakes at the table:

Chicken Chili

2 Large Chicken Breasts
1 Red Pepper
1 Yellow Pepper
1 Orange Pepper
16 oz Tomato Sauce
1 Can Black Beans
1 Can Corn
1 Can Chili Tomatoes
1 Packet Taco Seasoning
1 Tbs. Chili Powder

Combine all ingredients in crock pot and place chicken on top. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours.

I tasted the sauce before placing the chicken in the crock pot and it was delicious. It has a little spice from the chili tomatoes. Some might want more, but I have the little ones and want to keep it mild. My husband can always add some red pepper flakes to pump up the heat.

I am serving my chicken chili with baked potatoes. I have seen a few good recipes for sides like: loaded baked potato rounds or oven roasted potatoes with bacon. I might try ones of those if I am feeling adventurous. Even some deep fried pickles sound good!

What's for supper tonight in your house?


  1. what a great photo with the boy in the background

    1. Thanks! My son helped me dump all the ingredients in the crock pot when I was done cutting and can opening. He loves that stuff!

  2. Lovely photos, MB! I'm making a super easy tomato tortellini soup for after yoga class. It's four (or five?) ingredients, I think and comes together in a snap. Let us know how the chili turns out!

    1. Omg! I have tortellini in my freezer I need to use up! Send the recipe me way.


I read and appreciate every comment to my blog posts! Thank you!.
