Ok, I had two boneless chicken breast out on the counter to defrost.  My wife gave me strict instructions NOT to make chicken Parmesan (which we both love but we are tired of saucy stuff).  So I decided to look up some chicken chili recipes – and basically ended up making my regular chili but with ground chicken instead of ground beef.

It tasted crappy.  It was probably healthy, and maybe someone might think it was good.  But not us.  We need the BEEF.  We need the beef fat.  We can’t take shortcuts and make chili from stuff that chili isn’t supposed to made from.  Its foul 😉

Lesson Learned ===>> Don’t make chicken chili – ever – again!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-15oz. jar of salsa (medium or hot – you decide)
  • 1 teaspoon powdered cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 4 green onions, chopped


Directions

  1. Combine cumin and chili powder; rub over both sides of pork. In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oil on both sides over medium heat.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the salsa, cocoa and cinnamon; and pour it over the pork. Bring sauce to a simmer uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until meat is tender, turning chops once and stirring sauce occasionally. Sprinkle with parsley and green onion.
  3. Serve with pan-fried potatoes

Pan-fried potatoes

4 Russet potatoes (sliced thin or shredded)
