I had this client a few years ago. All of her food had to be gluten-free. Although I have a number of gluten-free recipes in my collection, she would ask for one particular dish over and over–and lots of it! She would want me to make 96 servings of my Turkey and Black Bean Chili for every monthly service for two years! All my clients love this chili–but I thought that was a little extreme. This recipe is based on that one–except there’s no beans and I use ground chicken.
