Left-over Chicken Chili

This chili is easy to make and can be made on the stovetop or in a slow-cooker.  We had BBQ chicken for a birthday party so I chopped up the leftover chicken for some chili the next day.  But you could also use chicken breast or ground chicken, turkey or beef.  If you begin with raw meat, just be sure to brown it on the stovetop before adding it to the chili.  I have listed the seasonings that I used but you can, of course, season your chili to taste.
