This time of year is typically cold, wet and nasty. However, this weekend it felt like spring came to our little corner of the world. Who could complain? With temperatures in the high 50’s and mid 60’s, with sunshine, it seemed to put everyone in a better mood. With this warm weather, I am not exactly sure why I wanted comfort food, but it just seemed, well, comforting.
This Saturday I wanted to try a new recipe. Chunky Chicken Chili, as my husband says, my “go to” dish (chili that is). He said this because I teased him during the week that his “go to” dish is Jambalaya, and he couldn’t argue with me. Even though I teased him, the Jambalaya was very good! (thank you Brian)
I went to the grocery store to buy the ingredients for this new chili dish. The recipe called for boneless chicken thighs, against my better judgement, I purchased them. Anyone who knows me, knows I do NOT eat dark meat anything! As I cleaned the boneless chicken thighs, it seemed anything but appetizing. I continued with the recipe, which did smell amazing.
Brian came home and we sat down to eat dinner. He knows how I feel about dark meat and he was surprised I didn’t change it and use white meat. I should have! I am not sure if it is psychological or the actual taste of the dark meat, maybe a little of both, but I loved the sauce and vegetables and could have done without the meat.
Regardless, the recipe was really yummy and so easy to make. I would recommend making it, but if you are anything like me, don’t use dark meat, definitely use white meat. If you would like to make the recipe please click here. If you have never heard of Food 52, I recommend following them on Instagram or sign up for their newsletter. They have some delicious recipes and also sell beautiful cookware and things for the kitchen.
I hope you enjoy a bowl, or at least check out the Food 52 website, it is full of recipes and so much more!
Thanks for following along, it is greatly appreciated! Have a great week everyone . . .

It looks delicious Debra! I’ll use white meat if I make it. Your pictures are so pretty!
Thank you!! Thanks for talking with me today too😉
You’re welcome. It was fun!
Looks delicious! Proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone with the dark meat chicken. 🍗🍗🍗🍗
Thanks honey. Still not a fan though 😉
Good job Debra:0) Must have been a “chili” kind of weekend…that is exactly what we ate today, but ours was made w/beef and garbanzo/kidney beans, yum!!
Sounds yummy!! Thanks Cecelia 💕
I enjoyed the chili. The poblano peppers have a unique taste. Something different from the green peppers.
