This is one of my son’s preferred comfort food meals. There are no worries about throwing out leftovers with this delicious dinner.

The resident teenage appetites have even been known to warm this up for breakfast the next morning.

Canned red kidney beans can be substituted for black beans, They should be well rinsed before using in the recipe.

When serving both meat eaters and vegetarians for dinner, this is also a very useful dish. That’s because the chili is essentially vegetarian anyway.

Except for the last of the cooking time, it does not come into contact with the roasted chicken pieces.

It’s therefore very easy to separate as many servings of the chili as necessary before pouring the remainder over the chicken for the meat eaters.

Recipes like this make it so simple to navigate such different dietary restrictions… and deliciously so too.
