Low Carb Pumpkin Chili Chicken


Submitted by Angelique

I love chili and this is the time of year when the slow cooker comes out for the warm comfort foods. I decided to make a low carb version with lean ground chicken and it turned out delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds lean ground chicken
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 pepper chopped
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • 1 can low sodium whole tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp ground pepper
  • cayenne pepper and paprika, to taste

Brown the chicken in a frying pan. Pour out the excess liquid and add to slow cooker. Pour in all the rest of the ingredients. Add as much cayenne and paprika as you want depending on how mild or hot you like your chili. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Add avocado as an option for a topping!
