White Bean Chicken Breast Chili Recipe
I love a hearty beef chili as much as the next guy, but once in a while there's nothing wrong with going over to the light side and enjoying an equally comforting bowl of white bean and chicken chili.
This white chicken chili recipe uses cannellini beans and diced chicken breasts in a chicken broth base.
Chicken breasts and Great Northern beans are simmered with green chiles and served with sour cream for a creamy white chili perfect for a cold night.
Delicious white bean chili. Cha Cha says: 'It's kinda spicy, so watch out!' Substitute mild green chiles for the jalapenos if you're scared! Use more chicken and cheese as desired.
Tomatillo salsa and green chilies lend fresh, green flavor to this version of chili verde that's made hearty with tender chicken thighs and white kidney beans.
Cooked chicken breast is combined with canned white beans, green chilies, onion and garlic in this chicken stock based chili seasoned with oregano, cumin and cayenne pepper. Serve with grated jack cheese.
I’ll admit that I’m a baby when it comes to spicy food, but my husband enjoys a good fiery dish from time to time. When I cook, I try to reach a happy medium that will satisfy both of us. I was nervous about the amount of chili powder in this recipe so I started with just half the amount. Turns out even that was way too much and hubby agreed. I trust his judgement when he says it’s overkill. The saving grace for this recipe is the toppings. The sour cream cools it down and the fresh cilantro and green onions gives it much needed flavor. Suffice to say, we did not skimp with the toppings!
Love chef John's videos and his recipes. This is no exception, except I'm one of those people who do not like cilantro - I replace it with parsley. Also appreciate the white meat gesture. Next time try adding corn as some reviewers suggested (edited Nov 22/15)
