It’s apple season so let’s make some chili

Chicken and apple cider chili.

We’re just going to let that sink in for a moment.

Even the creator of this fall slow cooker recipe says it seems at first like an odd combination.

Writing on her blog Foxes Love Lemons, Detroit culinary school grad Lori says:

Apple cider may seem like a weird ingredient for chili, but just go with me here. When I’ve served this recipe to family and friends, nobody has known that the secret ingredient is apple cider until I mentioned it, but I think the cider, along with the fall herbs, added a unique depth of flavor to a basic chicken chili.

What makes this an appealing recipe for the trucker on the road is that you can grab a rotisserie chicken and some apple cider at most any grocery store and cook up a stunning meal in a slow cooker. Cook on high for four hours or low for eight and you have a meal that could be the highlight of any day.
