High Protein, Low Carb, Low Fat Chicken Chili!

Super descriptive title, I know :)

While I've been following my macro focused diet, I've found it HARD to get in all my protein while maintaining lower levels of fat. Today I decided to prep Chicken Chili for the week. I plan on having this for lunch everyday! Which some people may find boring, but I'm super excited :) This chili recipe is SO DANG GOOD and I know you'll love it too!!

But first things first: this is the kind of ground chicken that I'm obsessed with. It's 95% Lean and 5% Fat. I definitely want to remind you guys to LOOK at the label before you buy! Luckily, with Smart Chicken I know that it's always lean..but that's not the case with all ground chicken. Some can be higher in fat and if you're trying to cut back on fat, then it won't help!

Now, onto the recipe:

Chicken Chili (Makes 5 Servings)

  • Ingredients:
    • 2 pounds Ground Chicken
    • 1 Red Onion, Medium
    • 4 Tbsp Minced Garlic
    • 3 Stalks Celery
    • 1, 6oz can Tomato Paste
    • 1, 14.5oz Tomatoes and Green Chiles
    • 1, 14.5oz Stewed Tomatoes with Seasoning
    • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
    • 4 Tbsp Chili Powder
    • 2 Tbsp Cumin
    • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Powder
    • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
    • 1 tsp Onion Powder
    • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
    • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Directions:
    • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add chicken and garlic. Brown the chicken. (I have a Ninja Cooking System so I set it to Stove Top for this portion). 
    • Transfer to slow cooker on HIGH heat. Add onions, celery, tomato paste, tomatoes with chilies, stewed tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and black pepper. 
    • Stir all ingredients together until well combined.
    • Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. 
  • MACROS: 345 Calories, 20g Carbohydrate, 37g Protein, 10g Fat 
  • There are 780mg of Sodium in this recipe. If you are limiting your sodium intake, make sure you buy LOW SODIUM tomato products. That can cut the sodium in this recipe in half!

I hope you enjoy :)

  1. Great recipe! I take it you mean "high" on slow cooker on the Ninja, not high on stovetop? Some lime juice when it's finished cooking is a great addition.


Thanks for stopping by! Love hearing from you :)
