Tonight, I made my first batch of chicken chili, ever. Like, from scratch and everything! :) I'm recording it here, just in case it turns out to be a big, icky failure--so I know what not to do.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 large jalapeƱos (seeds and membranes removed), chopped
1 pound ground chicken
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 cup chicken broth
2-15.5 oz cans of great northern beans (white beans), not drained
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin

In large skillet, saute onion and jalapeƱo until onion is translucent. Add ground chicken and poultry seasoning. Break up meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until chicken is cooked through. Drain fat from pan. Add broth, beans, chili powder, and cumin. Mix to combine. Bring to a simmer and let it bubble for 10-15 minutes, covered.

Yield: 4 cups

Notes:
* "Onion" this time is a mix of red and yellow.
* Jalapenos are completely seeded and demembrane-ified, which makes for a relatively mild chili.
* We haven't eaten the chili yet, except for a tiny sample. It's in a container in the fridge, mingling until dinnertime Tuesday evening.
* I also have tomato and corn on hand, just in case we decide that the chili needs something else.
* I also have zucchini, parsnips, carrots, and celery on hand, just in case this is screaming to be turned into a spicy stew. :>
