    1 lb of lean ground chicken
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion
    1 green bell pepper chopped
    1 tomato chopped
    1 can of beans (I used black)
    1 can of tomato sauce (15oz) (low sodium is better)
    4 Tbsp of Hunt's BBQ sauce
    Spices: Cayenne, chili powder, pepper, garlic


Saute onion and bell pepper til onions are clear.
Remove onto a plate.
Brown the ground chicken and spice it to your flavor.. I used garlic powder, red pepper flakes, chili powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper. (I like pepper ;) )
Add back the onion and bell pepper.
Add chopped tomato.
Add 1 can of beans.
Add 1 can of Tomato sauce
Stir. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Add in 1/4 cup of Hunt's BBQ sauce. Simmer another 5 or so minutes.


Ideas: serve over whole grain rice or whole wheat couscous.

This is spicy and a hit with my family. They can't hardly tell it's not beef ;)

Makes about 6 servings.

    Excellent! I seasoned mine with Cajun seasoning and used Sticky Fingers Carolina style bbq sauce. Also it is man-approved; my boyfriend loved it even though it was not red meat. - 4/15/09

    This recipe is amazing. I used red and orange sweet peppers instead and also added zucchini. My family loved it. I served it over brown minute rice. - 3/31/09

    I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks! I never would have thought to add BBQ sauce to my chili, but I will from now on.(I'm from Canada & used PC Stompin Stampede Sauce). I also added shredded carrots & celery. - 1/12/09
