Number of Servings: 6


    * 2 tablespoons olive oil
    * 1 large onion, chopped
    * 4 garlic cloves, minced
    * 2 pounds ground chicken
    * 1 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
    * 2 tablespoons ground cumin
    * 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
    * 1 tablespoon dried oregano
    * 2 teaspoons chili powder
    * 3 tablespoons flour
    * 2 (15-ounce cans) cannellini or other white beans, rinsed and drained
    * 1 bunch (about 1 pound) Swiss chard, stems removed, leaves chopped into 1-inch pieces
    * 11/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
    * 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
    * 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    * Freshly ground black pepper for seasoning
    * 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    * 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the ground chicken, 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, fennel seeds, oregano, and chili powder. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Stir the flour into the chicken mixture. Add the beans, Swiss chard, corn, and chicken stock. Bring the mixture to a simmer, scraping up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Simmer for 55-60 minutes until the liquid has reduced by about half and the chili has thickened. Add the red pepper flakes and simmer for another 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Ladle the chili into serving bowls. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley.

    I found this recipe on the food network. The only thing that I did different was used cut up chicken breast rather than ground chicken. All of my family raved about it from my four year old to teenagers to husband! Excellent! - 10/11/12
