    coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper
    1 + 1/4 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

Directions

In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan heat 1 tablespoons oil over medium heat and saute onion, both types of peppers and garlic until soft and tender.

Add cream cheese and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

This can also be made in a crockpot. Mix all ingredients (except the olive oil and cream cheese) and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Add the cream cheese during the last 30 mins.

-For a thick chili omit chicken broth.

-For a bigger pop of heat leave seeds in jalapeno peppers.
