My mother-in-law has been telling us about a white chicken chili she had at her cousin’s house a few weeks ago, Mom and Dad both keeps saying how great it was and how they really liked it. My husband loves a good chili too so I look through my new cook book and found a recipe that I think sounds similar to the one they had. I made a few additions and one subtraction and it really turned out wonderful, very creamy, very thick and just enough kick to know you were eating chili.
2 - Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (cubed)
1 – Medium Onion (chopped)
1 – Small Can Mushrooms (chopped…optional)
1 ½ Tsp. - Garlic Powder
1 Tbs. - EVOO
1 – 15 ½ oz. - Great Northern Beans
1 – 15 ½ oz. - Cannellini Beans
1 – 14 ½ oz. - Chicken Broth
2 – 4 oz. - Green Chilies (chopped…I used 1 can)
1 C. - Frozen Corn (optional)
1 Tsp. - Salt
1 Tsp. - Cumin
1 Tsp. - Dried Oregano
½ Tsp. - Pepper
¼ Tsp. - Cayenne Pepper
8 oz. - Sour Cream
½ C. - Heavy Cream
In a large soup pot sauté the chicken, onion, mushrooms, and garlic powder in EVOO until the chicken is no longer pink. Add the beans (liquid too), broth, chilies, corn and seasonings, bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and heavy cream. Serve immediately with a side salad or good crusty bread.
