    As with anything that goes in the crock pot this recipe is so simple but the amazing thing is that it is delicious i dont know that i would ever make chili any other way

    • Derek Howes on March 29, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Thanks Doug! Good to hear from ya man…been awhile

    Made this twice now, first time turned out great and the second time a little better (I put the onion and peppers in a food processor to get down on chopping time) but it came out a little thinner than I would have liked. Next time I’m not going to use much if any water in the mix.

    This has become a staple in my diet for training days. Excellent recipe!

    • Derek Howes on May 20, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Awesome Mike! Thanks for the comment

  4. Jeremy on June 23, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Derek, this recipe was delicious! I think it was the red pepper which added some natural sweetness to it. I made it for a party and everyone commented how good it tasted… no one told them that it was good for them too, haha!

  5. Naveen on November 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Just got back from the gym and tried the chili. Was a little sweet at first bite but the spiciness kicked in after. Amazing recipe, thank you!

  6. Andrew on November 25, 2013 at 12:00 am

    This is the second recipe of yours that I’ved tried. Both this and the meatloaf are outstanding!! Will definetly be making more of your recipes. Thanks alot. Keep them coming!!

    • Derek Howes on November 26, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Thanks for the wonderful comment Andrew! I hope you like everything you try!

  7. adam on December 21, 2013 at 12:00 am

    hey, quick question. do you bake the chicken on a cookie sheet? or wrap in foil? oil the chicken breasts first? probably a stupid question, but i rarely cook so i am pretty clueless in the kitchen

    • Derek Howes on December 24, 2013 at 12:00 am

      I usually just throw mine in a baking dish (with nothing on them) for this recipe. No oil or foil needed!

  8. Ivan on February 2, 2014 at 12:00 am

    The recipe looks delicious. Just got a question though. Would I be able to just throw some frozen chicken into the crockpot and cook it that way instead of using the oven?

  9. Kaushal on February 8, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Just made this recipe and it is absolutely amazing. Great taste, and it seems to taste even better when I reheat. One question is, if i make 1.5X the recipe, do i cook for 1.5X longer? Not sure if heating correlates with amount of ingredients in there.

    • Derek Howes on February 9, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Depending on how big your slow cooker is, cooking time should remain close to the same! Hope this helps 🙂

  10. Danny on February 10, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Derek,

    Love the recipe. The baked beans tend to add a lot of sodium to this recipe. Any tips or substitutions to help keep it down?

    Thanks!

    • Derek Howes on February 11, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Hi Danny! Thank you. Honestly just look for some lower sodium beans – there’s usually a few brands that offer them. If they aren’t down the regular aisle – they may be down the “natural” section of your grocery store! Hope this helps

  11. Bryan on July 4, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Great recipe, Derek! I will be trying it out tomorrow. Quick question: do you freeze the extra containers or just keep them in the refrigerator? How long do they stay good for? Thanks!

  12. Amy Smith on July 22, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Hi Derek,

    Haven’t tried this recipe yet but it looks awesome! I love making meals like this and portioning them out to bring for lunch at work.

    How many servings does it usually make?

    Thanks!

  13. Joseph on November 15, 2015 at 12:00 am

    I love this recipe! This has now become one of my staples for lunch. Sunday is the day I prep my lunch for the week. I always try to find a recipe that I can make in bulk that will last all week and this fits the bill perfectly. Great job Derek.
