Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Sear the Chicken
Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Pat chicken dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add chicken to hot pot and stir occasionally until browned on two sides, 3-5 minutes.
Transfer to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.
Start the Chili
Drain black beans.
Return pot used to sear chicken to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add peppers, corn, and black beans to hot pot. Stir often until slightly softened, 3-5 minutes.
Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains.
Add 1¼ cups water, chicken base, seasoning blend, and ¼ tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, stir often until broth is thickened and smooth, 2-3 minutes.
Finish the Chili
Add chicken and half the sour cream (reserve remaining for garnish) to hot pot. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes.
For a thinner consistency, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Finish the Dish
