One Pot Chicken and Rice Chili

I was looking on Pinterest for something new and easy to make for dinner and came across this recipe, which I adapted (based on what I had on hand) to make the dish you see. We were all very pleased with how it turned out! My recipe is below:

(I am not impressed with what Blogger is doing with the color of my photos)

One Pot Chicken Rice Chili


1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 12 oz can of chunk chicken (or the same amount of your own cooked chicken, beef or sausage)
5 cups of chicken broth
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
3/4 c of red kidney beans
3/4 c. of garbanzo beans (or any white bean)
1/5 cups of kale, torn into small pieces
1 tsp of chili powder
1 tsp of cumin
salt and pepper to taste
10 oz of brown rice (I used parboiled)
3/4 cup of shredded cheese


Heat oil in large skillet or pot.  Add onions and cook until soft, about five minutes.   Add chicken.

Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, kale and spices.  Bring to a simmer.  Stir in rice.    Bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer until rice is cooked through.

Remove from heat.  Top with cheese and cover until melted, about 2 minutes.

Serve with sour cream, avocado or salsa if you wish.
