1 tablespoon olive oil
2 (8 ounces) Gold'n Plump® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 rib (stalk) celery, coarsely chopped (including green tops)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (10-1/2 ounces) fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
4 (6- or 7-inch) flour tortillas, each cut into 6-inch wedges
4 sprigs fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Heat oil in large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until it is lightly browned but not cooked through.
Stir in bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and vegetables are tender.
Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes with juice, beans, chilies, corn, cumin, pepper, and dried basil or oregano (if using). Increase heat to high; when mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium; cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and fresh cilantro (if using) during last minute or two.
To make tortilla chips, arrange tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for about 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Transfer to a plate to cool. (The chips will become crisper as they cool.)
