White Chicken Chili

This white chicken chili cooks up fast and tastes great! You could make it milder by leaving out the green chilies.

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 - 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts or equivalent tenders, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 15-oz cans white beans, usually I use cannelini or great northern beans
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 4 oz can of diced green chilies
  • 1 Tbs of cumin
  • a few shakes of cayenne
  • black pepper to taste
  • grated Jack cheese to serve at the table
  • sour cream to serve at the table
  1. Saute the chopped onion in a bit of olive oil.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the pan with the onions after you've cut them up.
  3. Add the chopped garlic.
  4. Rinse and drain the beans.
  5. Add the broth, beans, green chilies, cumin, cayenne and black pepper to the pan. Cover and simmer until the chicken is done, usually about 10 minutes.
  6. Grate the cheese while the chicken is finishing and put the sour cream in a small bowl to pass at the table.
