Creamy Smoky Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Prep Time: n/aCook Time: n/aTotal Time: n/a


1 tablespoons olive oil 1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs � teaspoon salt � teaspoon pepper 1 sweet onion, diced 1 red bell pepper, diced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 (14-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes 2 (4-ounce) cans diced green chilies 1 Harry and David smoky chicken chili mix 6 cups chicken stock 3/4 cup half and half 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour _For topping thinly sliced jalapeno peppers crushed tortilla chips finely grated cotija cheese or queso fresco fresh chopped cilantro


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with the salt and pepper. Add them to the skillet and sear until both sides are deeply golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to the slow cooker. Place the onion, pepper, garlic, diced tomatoes, and green chilies over top. Pour the soup mix in along with the chicken stock and stir. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. After 8 to 10 hours, remove the lid of the slow cooker and pull the chicken apart. (It will most likely fall apart.) Place the half and half in a shaker bottle. Add the flour on top, cover, and shake for 30 seconds to create a slurry. Stream the mixture into the slow cooker and stir. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and cook on low for 30 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with lots of toppings, like grated cheese, tortilla chips, avocado, jalapeno peppers and cilantro.
