This delicious and hearty dish is a snap to put together... great for a cool fall night....a perfect weeknight meal!
I add my chicken to the crockpot frozen... yes you read that right... frozen... it slow cooks and defrosts all at once to make a really tender chicken that's easy to shred.
I served this with some sliced green onion and shredded cheddar cheese for garnish... shredded Mexican blend cheese works well also.
Be sure to add the sour cream and heavy cream about a 1/2 hour before serving.. allowing the chili to thicken.
If you want to lower the fat a bit... use fat free half and half in place of the heavy cream.
I'm not a fan of reduced fat sour cream... in my opinion, it changes the taste significantly but if you like it.. by all means substitute it for the regular sour cream.
If necessary, adjust the seasoning before serving.
This serves 4.
I hope you try this terrific chili!
