Chicken Chilli

14 Oct

I have been looking for a recipe for chicken chilli for a while and stumbled across this recipe this morning whilst trying to decide what to make for dinner.  It is a low fat chilli chicken recipe and was found on the myrecipes site.  Now I haven’t made it yet but I think I will attempt it tonight or tomorrow depending on whether I have everything in the fridge for it :-D.  I have adapted the recipe slightly to make less and also to make it more Slimming World friendly and as soon as I make it I will update the recipe with any modifications and of course a picture.  If in the meantime anyone else decides to make it please let me know how it turns out.  The original recipe can be found here.
