Sometimes, when I have a busy schedule, I use leftover chicken breast. It’s perfect for this recipe – trust me! If I don’t have any and want to save some time, I buy rotisserie chicken from the store to make the cooking time faster. You can serve it as is, but I love to add diced avocadoes on top and serve it with tortilla chips, they make this fall or winter soup better!

Chicken Chili Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (finely diced)
