I've never made chili with shredded chicken. But... I had three thawed chicken breasts in the fridge seeking a mission. I baked them in chili seasoning & garlic this morning. One hour at 350 degrees. The kitchen smelled wonderful! Cut and shredded them and added them to the good ol' crock pot we've had since the 1980's. Then:
Unsalted chicken stock
Three diced up green bell peppers
Chopped up green onions
ONE sliced up serrano pepper
I'm probably forgetting something. Will split the chili and add beans to half of it. Have cilantro for flavoring later, and haven't added all the spices yet. Looking forward to this, a change from my usual elk, deer, or beef chili. Seasoned it with chili powder, minced garlic, black pepper, just a bit of cayenne pepper and a dash of salt.
Turned out quite nicely. I could see doing this with pheasant or pretty much any game bird instead of the chicken.
