Simply Healthy Chicken Chili

We took our Mama’s Chicken Chili recipe and amped up the nutrition without sacrificing its delicious flavor. The biggest difference between the two recipes is that this one uses crushed tomatoes and only 1 jar of tomato sauce. The crushed tomatoes contain considerably less sodium than jarred tomato sauce, making it a better alternative for those following a heart healthy diet. Swapping out traditional ground beef with white chicken breast in our chili recipes is a no brainer for decreasing the fat content. Vegetarian? Add more beans to meet your protein requirements.  No matter what your preferences are, the slow cooker lets you simply toss your ingredients in and come home to a chili dinner ready to eat!
