Ingredients:

1 pound chicken breast fillets -- 4-fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
10 cups water
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 medium potato -- peeled and chopped
1 small onion -- diced
1 cup frozen yellow corn
1/2 medium carrot -- sliced
1 medium celery stalk -- diced
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
15 ounces red kidney beans -- plus liquid
1/4 cup diced canned pimento
1 medium jalapeno -- diced
1/4 cup chopped italian parsley
1 clove garlic -- minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 dash basil
1 dash oregano
---ON THE SIDE---
1 packages sour cream
1 dash chopped italian parsley
 

Preparation / Directions:

1. Saut‚ the chicken breasts in the olive oil in a large pot over medium/high heat. Cook the chicken on both side until done -- about 7-10 minutes per side. Cool the chicken until it can be handled. Do not rinse the pot. 2. Shred the chicken by hand into bite-sizes pieces and place the pieces back into the pot. 3. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and turn heat to high. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 hours. Stir mixture often so that many of the chicken pieces shred into much smaller bits. Chili should reduce substantially to thicken and darken (less orange, more brown) when done. 4. Combine some chopped Italian parsley with sour cream and serve it on the side for topping the chili, if desired. Makes 4-6 servings.
