2 tablespoons olive oil

6 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces 

3 cloves garlic, minced 

1 large onion, chopped 

2 tablespoons chili powder 

2 teaspoons paprika 

1 tablespoon cumin


One 14-ounce can tomato sauce 


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and heat until hot. Add the chicken in batches and cook, browning, a couple minutes per side; remove the chicken to a plate using a slotted spoon. Add the garlic and onions to the skillet and cook briefly. Add the chili powder, paprika, cumin and salt to taste. Pour in the tomato sauce and 2 cups water to create a broth. Add the chicken back to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the broth is reduced by half.
  2. Let cool, divide among 4 freezer bags and freeze.
