Quick and Easy White Chicken Chili

Submitted by: MSHEBERT

Introduction

Easy and delicious, this white chicken chili can be a side to grilled cheese sandwich, or be the main meal. My husband likes it over 1/2 cup brown rice, topped with light sour cream and and green onions. To feed a bunch, just double the recipe!

Ingredients

    1 lb chicken breast, diced
    12 oz bag Pictsweet vegetable seasoning blend
    (OR 1 c diced onion, 1/2 c diced celery,
    1/2 c diced bell pepper)
    1 TBS minced garlic
    1 packet McCormick White Chicken chili seasoning blend
    (OR 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp garlic
    powder, 1 tsp onion powder)
    2 15-oz cans white kidney beans, unseasoned
    1 can diced tomatoes (or 1 cup fresh diced)
    2 TBLS olive oil
    4 cups chicken stock (skim fat if make own)

Tips

This can be topped with low fat grated cheese, light sour cream, diced avocado, diced green onions, and fresh diced tomatoes, if desired (not included in nutrition count).


Directions

1) Cook diced chicken by either microwaving until just done in a covered dish (about 5-8 minutes on high), or put in pot with 4 cups water and boil until just tender (about 5 minutes), or by sauteing in bottom of large pot with pam sprayed on bottom and a drizzle of olive oil until just done, about 5 minutes (remove from large pot).
2) In large pot, add 2 TBS of olive oil and vegetable seasoning blend and minced garlic, heat on low until vegetable soften, about 5 or 6 minutes.
3) Add dry seasoning packet (or spices as called out above) and stir in well.
4) Add white kidney beans and half of chicken stock. Stir.
5) Bring to a simmer and add rest of chicken stock to desired "juicyness." Some people like thicker chili, some like it juicy, especially if its going over rice. This is totally up to you. We like it a little juicy :)
