Slow Carb Chicken Chili

This is a Slow Carb Chicken Chili that I modified for P90X. It's approximately a 50/30/20 meal; 50% protein, 30% carbs, 20% fat and is a good choice for Phase 1 "Fat Shredder" of P90X.

To increase carbs for other phases of P90X, try adding onions and more beans.

I really like this recipe and it'll be one of my primary meals throughout P90X.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups chopped or diced cooked chicken
  • 1.5 cans great northern beans (drained)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cups chicken stock or broth (low sodium fat free)
  • 8 tbsp of chopped green chilies
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 5 tsp minced garlic

Directions:

Without Onions

  1. Over medium-high heat add chicken, oil, garlic, chilies, chicken cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper. Saute for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Add beans and chicken broth.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours or longer uncovered.

With Onions

  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the chopped onions and saute until translucent (10 mins)
  2. Add garlic, chilies, chicken cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper. Saute for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add beans and chicken broth.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours or longer uncovered.

Dish out however much you need based on your caloric requirements. On a 2400 calorie-a-day meal plan, with only three meals, you would need about 800 calories per meal. In this case, a little over 2 cups as 1 cup is aprox. 352 calories.

Cooking times are estimated.

Enjoy! Feel free to modify as necessary. Add even more cayenne pepper if you want more heat! I added an extra 3/4 tsp for 1 tsp total.

Note: I need a larger skillet!
