Last night my main dish was a casserole made up with baked chicken, gravy from scratch, veggies and topped with mashed potatoes.
This is tonight's copied pasted from a post I made elsewhere:
I have this
going in the crockpot for dinner tonight with a few changes. I left out the spicy additions because while I love flavor I do not like spice. My poor husband will have to add his own.
2 pounds ground chicken, coarsely ground preferred (4 large chicken quarters partially baked, cut off the bone and thrown in in large chunks because that is what I had on hand.)
3 tablespoons chili powder, plus 2 teaspoons (none)
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15-ounce) can white beans, drained and rinsed
2 (28-ounce) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes (1 can of diced tomatoes; again it's what I had)
1 medium sweet potato (about 10 ounces), peeled and shredded (none)
1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth ( 1 10oz plus the broth from the chicken i cooked last night)
1/4 cup instant tapioca (recommended: Minute tapioca) (none)
1 to 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce with seeds, chopped (none)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon kosher salt (plain salt)
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons granulated garlic (dry sliced garlic)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
1/2 to 3/4 cup lager-style beer, optional (none)
Toppings: Sour cream, shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese, chopped scallions, and chopped pickled jalapenos
Put the chicken in the slow cooker. Add 3 tablespoons of the chili powder and all the rest of the ingredients, except the beer. Stir everything together, cover, and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
Just before serving, stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons of chili powder, the beer, if using, and season with more salt and pepper, to taste, if desired. Divide the chili among warm bowls. Serve with the topping of your choice.
Know-How: Stirring in chili powder right before serving brightens the flavor of the chili.
