White Chicken Chili

This recipe is a bit of work, but it is delicious!  We had it for lunch today – not sure why this is what sounded good on a hot summer afternoon, but it did.  Hope you enjoy!

White Chicken Chili

Ingredients:

1.5 pounds chicken breasts

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 medium yellow onions, chopped

1 jalapeño pepper, finely cut

1 cubanelle pepper, finely cut

4 garlic cloves, minced

2, 15-oz cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

4 cups chicken broth

1 lime, juiced

1 tablespoon cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 cup cilantro

Directions:

  • In advance, place chicken in crockpot on high for 4 hours.  Shred when finished cooking.  Store in fridge or use right away for chili.
  • Take 1 cup of cannellini beans and a splash of the chicken broth and put in food processor.  Process until smooth.
  • Heat olive oil in large pot.
  • Add onions and peppers and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Add everything else except cilantro (chicken, bean mixture in food processor, beans, lime juice, and spices).  Cook 10 minutes at a gentle boil.
  • Add cilantro and cook 1 more minute.
  • Enjoy!

Notes:

Don’t look too close at my picture, I somehow only bought 1 can of cannellini beans at the store so I used a can of garbonzo beans too.  It still tasted good!

Also, feel free to try with more lime juice if you like lime!  And there can never be enough cilantro! 🙂
