Notes

TIP: For a vegetarian chili, omit the chicken and stir in a drained 15 to 16-ounce can of black beans instead!

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons butter, such as Country Crock® Spread, divided
  • 2 corn tortillas, cut into small wedges
  • 12 Ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into small chunks
  • 1 1/4 Cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Pound plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 2 Teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

Directions

Melt 1 tablespoon Country Crock® Spread in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortillas and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and crisp, about 4 minutes; remove and set aside.

Melt 1 tablespoon Spread in same skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked, about 3 minutes; remove and set aside. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in same skillet over medium-high heat and cook corn, red pepper, and onion, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, chili powder, and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and cook covered until tomatoes cook down and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken and cilantro; top servings with tortilla wedges.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
