Stove Top Method:

  • Heat a large pot over a medium high heat. While the pot is heating up, season the chicken thighs with 1 tsp of salt.
  • When the pot is hot enough, add the oil and then add the chicken thighs. Sear the chicken thighs on both sides until they have the golden brown look.
  • Once the chicken thighs are golden brown, add in all of the remaining ingredients and stir to combine DO NOT ADD the coconut milk.
  • Simmer on a low medium heat for 30 to 45 minutes or until the chicken thighs are tender and easy to shred.
  • Once the chicken thighs are tender, use 2 forks to shred the chicken in the pot. Then add the coconut milk and stir to combine. Add a little more salt if needed.
  • Let it simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve the Chili with your favorite toppings.

Slow Cooker Method:

  • Place all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the coconut milk, in the slow cooker insert and cook on low until the chicken is tender and ready to shred. Roughly 4-6 hours on low or 2-4 hours on high.
  • Then, shred the chicken in the cooker and then add in the coconut milk. Cook the chili for another 15-20 minutes in the slow cooker and then serve with your favorite toppings.
