See the recipe below for a great bowl of Chicken Chili – chicken breast is much lower in saturated fat than ground beef and the beans provide a good source of fiber.

White Chicken Chili

7 servings
Serving Size: 1 cup


Cooking spray
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 medium onion, finely diced

1 cup fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
1 4-ounce can mild green chilies, diced
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  3. Add all remaining ingredients and chicken and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
