Chicken Verde Chili Recipe

Chicken Verde Chili Recipe

I have made this Chicken Verde Chili recipe in several ways. I have seasoned split chicken breast, on the bone, and roasted them in the oven for 45 minutes on 375 degrees. I have also taken split chicken breast and boiled them in a pot, reserving the stock for the soup.

This time, we had purchased rotisserie chickens from Costco. After shredding the meat, I took the bones and threw them in a pot of water, bringing it to a boil. I then let it boil for one hour, strained the liquid, and kept the clear stock. The next day, when I was ready to make the chili, throwing everything together was a breeze.

I am sure you can use any salsa verde (green salsa) that you choose. I have always used the Herdez brand because I always appreciate the flavor and the amount is perfect. In the past, depending on who’s eating it, I have thrown in a quarter cup of chopped jalapenos or green chiles. Serving with oyster crackers or tortilla strips is always a great idea! Enjoy!
