Chicken and Sausage Chili Recipe

Chicken and Sausage Chili picture

I don’t use ground chicken as an ingredient very often so I decided to give this Chicken and Sausage Chili Recipe a try. I figured the ground chicken would be a good health alternative as compared to the ground beef that is normally used.
This Chicken and Sausage Chili Recipe is loaded with ingredients which give the chili a unique flavor. Depending on taste I would say there is room to turn up the heat a little bit by adding additional cayenne pepper.
Unlike many slow cooker recipes, this is not a set it and forget it recipe, you have to make yourself available for at least for a few hours to go through the processes the recipe calls for. Once the chili is on low temperature you can let it go, and do whatever the day needs you to do.
This is not a typical chili recipe, but it is very good, and well worth the effort to prepare. Give this one a try. Enjoy

Garlic Chicken with Rigatoni recipe

This is a little different take on garlic chicken, but it is really good. I don’t very often use sun dried tomatoes as an ingredient but the tangy flavor of sun dried tomatoes make this dish a step above the rest. There are quite a few ingredients in this recipe so it’s a good idea to have it all together before you start cooking. The original recipe called for a boneless skinless chicken breast, but I decided to substitute chicken tenders instead.
