I am taking part in the Eat Clean Live Happy Blogger Challenge sponsored by Kevin's Natural Foods. It’s holiday time and I am delighted to share this recipe with you! It’s a bold new take on chicken chili, but can also be twisted up to use turkey leftovers.
Aromatic and full of flavor, this White Thai Chicken Chili features Kevin’s Natural Foods Thai Coconut Sauce. Made with coconut milk, basil and Thai spices this healthy meal is literally on your table in less than 30 minutes. Further, I guarantee rave reviews. It's as easy as sauté, sauce and serve.
Pro-tip: the bell pepper (or sweet pepper) is technically a colorful summer fruit that is used as a vegetable due to its versatile role in the kitchen. The color of bell peppers changes from green to yellow, orange, and red the longer it is allowed to mature on the plant. The longer on the plant the sweeter it becomes.
Start this recipe by sautéing some colorful peppers and onions in unrefined coconut oil. Green bell peppers have a slight bitterness to them that balances well with the sweetness of the orange, but you can choose whatever peppers you like. My family loves fresh chicken thigh meat in this recipe, but if you want to use leftover cooked chicken or turkey go right ahead. Add 2 to 3 cups of bite-sized cooked poultry when you add the Thai coconut sauce.
Pro-tip: Sometimes called virgin coconut oil, unrefined coconut oil is oil that has been pressed from coconut meat and undergone no further processing.
