This is another of those recipes I scribbled on a scrap of paper- who knows where it originated from. If I had known I was going to have a food blog I would have kept track better! I altered it a few times, and we really like this easy, hearty, satisfying dish.
CREAMY CHICKEN CHILI
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch cubes (about 2 breasts)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
