White Bean & Chicken Chili

Be prepared people. This chili will throw people off. Its green, has white beans and chicken. Talk about upsetting peoples whole idea of "chili".
White Bean Chicken Chili:
  • 1lb of chicken breasts
  • 2 cans of navy beans (do NOT drain!)
  • 2 T veg oil
  • 1 small can of chicken broth (or an equal amount of water)
  • 1 can of diced fire roasted green chiles (not jalapenos, just green chiles)
  • 1 med yellow onion (diced)
  • 2-3 T minced garlic
  • 1/2 c green salsa
  • Par boil chicken and diced onion together on stove top.
  • Strain chicken & onion and cut into chicken into small pieces.
  • Do NOT drain the beans, the juice with navy beans is good in this....its not thick and nasty.
  • Place chicken & onion into a pot with oil, beans, chiles, garlic & salsa and bring to a simmer.
  • Season with salt & pepper
  • Serve with chopped cilantro, diced avocado & spoonfuls of sour cream.
  • Serves 4-6
This is a more soupy chile and its yummy with cornbread muffins.
