White Bean Chicken Chili

On Sunday I experimented with a new {and simple} recipe that is both hearty and healthy for the entire family.  Regular chili is a usual favorite in my home, so I thought I would mix it up a bit by trying a white chili.  Better yet...I made this recipe in the slow cooker which is a blessing for working moms everywhere.  All you have to do is throw everything in at once, set to low, and forget about it until dinner.  

I started with a few ingredients...chicken broth, white beans, green chillies, Anaheim pepper, garlic and an onion.  

Jalapenos could be used for even more of a kick.  

White Bean Chicken Chili

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 large onion, diced
2 cans {4 ounces} chopped green chilies, drained
1 can white beans, drained {I used cannelini beans}
2 cups chicken broth
Dash red {cayenne} pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper  
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
4 teaspoons cilantro, chopped
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons cumin
1 Anaheim pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced 
Optional toppings: sour cream, cheddar cheese and tortilla chips

Combine all of the above ingredients {except the sour cream, cheese and chips} in a slow cooker.  

Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.  Top with sour cream and cheese and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.  

Serves 4-6

A delicious and healthy meal for the coldest of winter daysPlus, it's even better the next day for lunch....
