I'm a college student and one of the things I miss the most at school is my mom's wonderful cooking. This slow cooker recipe is something I can make in my dorm on a busy Sunday. I just throw it all in the slow cooker before I leave for church and come back to piping hot homemade comfort food. The first bite of this chili almost always brings me to tears; it's so good to have a little piece of home while away. Be sure to serve with a good sprinkle of cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and plenty of tortilla chips. —Bailey Starkey, Mount Vernon, Washington

"Love this recipe, it's super easy. I like to saute the onions before adding them so they aren't crunchy, but other than that it's a great recipe with an interesting and different flavor."

"We love this recipe! changed it around a bit to add spices on top of sweet potatoes and it flavored them a bit better. Onions and tomatoes etc. on top of the chicken. Very good recipe!"

"Other than the fact that the sweet potatoes were still hard after all day in a slow cooker, I liked this recipe. Interesting combination of flavors and ingredients. As the other reviewer stated, the cinnamon really flavors this chili."

"Excellent! I love how the cinnamon flavors this chili. I didn't have coriander so I used cumin and I made it on the stovetop since I don't have a slow cooker."
