I had heard about chicken chili many times on the OH boards but had never taken the time to look it up and give it a try. It is absolutely a unique taste and I love it. I will say though, that my husband and son were not as enthused about it as I was. Fortunately, it is inexpensive to make and I believe well worth trying. It made several meals for me and is quite a change from regular soups and chili.
White Bean and Chicken Chili
1 tbsp olive oil
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 small onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 - 4oz cans roasted green chilies, drained
1 tbsp ground cumin
2 - 15 oz cans white beans, drained and rinsed
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
Warm oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Place chicken in crockpot and add onions, garlic, cumin, chilies, beans, water, and broth. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
Remove 1 cup of beans plus 1/2 cup of liquid and puree together in blender. Pour mixture back into crockpot and shred chicken with fork. Serve hot. Serves 6.
