Ingredients:  
1 tsp. olive oil
3 tsp. whole cumin seed
2 medium onions, finely chopped (about 3 cups)
5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 3/4 lbs.), cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 dried bay leaf
One 28 oz. can chopped tomatoes with their juice

2 1/2 c. low-sodium chicken stock, skimmed of fat
1.2 tsp. coarse salt
4 c. canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a large, heavy-bottom pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil and cumin seeds over medium heat until the cumin is lightly toasted and aromatic, about 1 minute. Add onion, garlic, and bell pepper, and reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft and lightly golden, about 10 minutes.

2. Raise heat to medium and add the chicken, chili powder, oregano, and crumbled bay leaf to pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is seared on the outside and coated thoroughly with spices, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and green chiles and stir to combine. Cook 5 minutes. Add stock, salt, and beans; season with black pepper and stir to combine.

3. Cover, simmer. Stir contents, then replace lid to partially cover pot. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until chili is thickened and chicken is tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 hours.

4. Divide chili among six bowls; garnish with sour cream and cilantro leaves or shredded cheese and chopped onion - whatever you like! Serve immediately or next day.

Personal Notes:
Got to give credit to Martha Stewart on this one. Best tips: Chop everything before you start. You can also add chopped hot peppers to spice it up.
