Enjoy this chicken chili dinner packed with garbanzo beans and veggies – a flavorful dinner.

Ingredients

4
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-sized pieces
1
cup chopped onions
1/2
cup chopped celery
1/2
cup chopped carrot
2
garlic cloves, minced
1
cup purchased salsa
1
(28-oz.) can whole tomatoes, undrained, cut up
1
(8-oz.) can tomato sauce
3
teaspoons chili powder
1/2
teaspoon cumin
1
(15-oz.) can garbanzo beans, drained
1
medium green bell pepper, chopped

Directions

  • 1 Spray large nonstick saucepan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken, onions, celery, carrot and garlic; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink.
  • 2 Stir in salsa, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garbanzo beans and bell pepper; simmer until thoroughly heated.
Tips  

Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas or ceci peas, have 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of fat per 1/2 cup. They combine well with tomatoes and can be used as a substitute for other dried beans.

Make the chili up to two days in advance and refrigerate it. The flavors will blend and intensify as the chili sits. Reheat it over low heat.

For a party, set out the chili with bowls of add-your-own toppings, such as grated Jack cheese, minced onion, chopped jalapeños, sour cream (or yogurt), chopped fresh cilantro, hot pepper sauce and diced tomatoes.
