Italian Chicken Chili

This recipe is easy to prepare and filled with all healthy ingredients. All you need is a crock pot! This is a great meal for those cold winter days and the whole family will love this alternative to regular chili. If you are really stranded for time you can use canned tomatoes and canned mushrooms. I used the chicken breasts that are cut into tenders(pulls apart a little easier then full breasts).  If you're not a fan of Kale, then use spinach. Season it as much or as little as you want to your own taste preferences. Enjoy!! Ingredients:5 cups kale
