White Bean Chicken Chili

 

white chicken chili

There’s just something about windy chilly fall days!!!

It’s truly my favorite time of year!

Our temps have been in the 60’s and dinner time has had me in the mood for my ” first of the season” pot of chili - White Bean Chicken Chili that is!!

This one is a favorite around our house!

It’s such an easy recipe, the only problem I have with it is, it’s never quite enough!

You may want to double the recipe, we only get about 5 servings out of one batch – and this is something that is DEFINITELY good left over!

White Bean Chicken Chili

This can be prepared a day ahead – it’s even better the second day!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons veg oil
  • 1 large onion,chopped (optional)
  • 4 large garlic cloves, chopped (I use the minced in the jar)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon taragon
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper (if you don’t want it as HOT use 1/4)
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 15-ounce cans of Bush’s cannellini beans (white kidney beans)
  • 1 cup canned chicken broth
  • 1 3-ounce can diced green chilies
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • Grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat your oil in a dutch oven over medium heat, add onion, garlic, and spices. Saute for about 5 minutes. While that is sauteing, season cut chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Saute for an additional 5 minutes.
  2. Drain beans (RESERVE 1/2 cup of bean liquid). Add beans, chicken broth, chilies, cream and reserved bean liquid to pot. Simmer for about 10 minutes, then cook on low for about 30 mins.
  3. Serve in bowl and top with cheese!

    My family LOVES White Bean Chicken Chili! I usually make a triple batch and freeze it for super fast suppers during our hectic basketball season. My recipe is very similar to yours but without the cream. Now I am thinking that cream makes everything taste better so I might just have to try that! Thanks.

    I’d have to say that chili is always my “go to” cool day dish. It’s especially wonderful because it’s my husband’s specialty so I don’t have to make it!! I’m going to send him this link hoping he gets inspired.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
