Slow-Cooker Ground Chicken Chili Recipe

Chicken Chili

I was really surprised by how flavorful this slow-cooker, ground chicken chili was. Pleasantly surprised, of course. It tasted delicious enough for this recipe to need to be shared.

I received a slow cooker as a wedding gift from a cousin-in-law, and it has been getting a ton of use this year. Whenever I know I have a busy couple of days, I throw a meal into it so that we have it ready when we wake up. For this recipe, I pretty much just winged it, which is why I don’t have exact measurements of seasonings.


1 lb ground chicken

1 small can of Rotel

Water (fill the empty Rotel can use that as the amount of water to add)

1 28 OZ. can of crushed tomatoes

1 cup of boiling water with 1 beef bouillon cube melted into it

1 can of black beans

Lots of paprika (guessing around 3 TBS)

Lots of chili powder (guessing around 3 TBS)

Salt (Big sprinkle)

Black Pepper (big sprinkle)

Garlic powder (guessing 1 TBS)

Lots of onion powder (guessing 2-3 TBS)

Lots of cumin (guessing around 3 TBS)

2 crushed garlic cloves

3 pinches of sugar

Big sprinkle of crushed red pepper (Guessing ½ TBS)

Now What?

Put everything in the slow cooker. Stir it. Cook on low heat for 8 hours. Yep. That’s it.

In the picture I ate a bowl of it served over white rice and then topped with lots of fresh cilantro.
