White Chicken Chili

Oooh, got up this morning and it's a crisp 55 degrees outside! Makes me start thinking about cool-weather comfort food, like this wonderful chili recipe.

Here's what you'll need:

1.5 lbs. boneless chicken breast, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup chicken broth
1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies
1 can (19 oz.) cannellini beans, undrained
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 green onions, sliced thinly
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese

Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and onions; cook for 5 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, chilies, and spices; simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in beans. Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat.

Ladle in bowls and top with green onions and cheese. Makes about 4 cups.

Variation: If you're in a hurry, substitute canned white chicken for the cubed chicken breast, and omit the directions for sauteing the chicken. Drain the canned chicken and add to the saucepan, stir in chicken broth, chilies, and spices; bring to nearly boiling, then simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in beans. Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat.

  1. Oh yummy ! I'm going to the grocery store today and I think I'll add these ingredients to my list ! :-) Janae

  2. We got a "sprinkle" of rain last night (just a teaser) But it cooled it down here a bit and I am excited to start baking and cooking again in the oven! I'll have to try your recipe-It looks wonderful!

  3. As I was reading your post I was wondering if you could use the canned chicken and then you said you could! Great and I bet it tastes wonderful:)

  4. I've actually made this & it's delicious. Not sure if it is the same recipe but very similar. I made bean soup tonight but I went to dinner & the movie with the girls but Simon said it was great.


  5. That's one of our FAVORITE cool/cold weather meals!! YUMMMM!! Thanks for the reminder, I think it's about time to whip up a batch!!
