BBQ Chicken Chili

Fall is hands down my most favorite season. Warm scarves. Leaves crunching under my boots. And the food. Fall food is a special, unique category all unto itself. And homemade chili is one of those tasty fall meals...especially if you have some venison. Nothing like a hunk of deer meat in your chili ;-) #daughterofahunter

Last week I was looking for a new chili recipe to kick off fall with. Knowing Jim's deep love for all things BBQ, I knew I couldn't pass this one up from Skinnytatse.

The recipe calls for cooking over the stove top, but I was itching to use the crock pot. Still tasty...added cayenne pepper for an extra kick too

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of onion diced 
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
12 oz. boneless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups canned cannellini beans
1 1/2 cups canned kidney beans
3 cups low sodium chicken stock
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
1 container of Stubb's original BBQ sauce
cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro for topping

1// Pour olive oil in bottom of crock pot

2// Add all ingredients minus cheddar cheese and cilantro

3// Cook on High for 6-7 hours

4// Ladle chili into bowls and top with cheddar cheese and cilantro.

Needless to say it's pretty tasty ;)

Any new recipes you're trying out this Fall? What is your favorite fall food or recipe to make at home?
Happy eating, friends!

  1. Ooh, this looks tasty! I love BBQ chicken, and this looks like a really cool way to consume it! I'll have to give this a whirl sometime in the next couple months. During falltime, I love making (and eating!) soups and stews: broccoli soup, potato soup, tomato soup with grilled cheese (classic!), chili, chicken stew (possibly with dumplings). I also love acorn squash; putting it in pasta or baking it in sugar & butter are both ways I love to consume it! I'm also a big fan of corn bread, but haven't made it in years for some weird reason, so I just bought myself a huge bag of cornmeal to get baking!

  2. Soup weather! I'm so excited - soup is one of my all-time favorite foods!

  3. I need fall weather before I can do fall food!
