Creamy White Chicken Chili
- 4 -5 cups cooked, shredded chicken meat – rotisserie chicken is perfect
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1T vegetable oil
- 2 cans great northern beans (15 oz) – rinsed and drained
- 1 can chicken broth (14 oz) (I use chicken bouillon powder mixed into 14 oz of water)
- 2 cans chopped green chilies (4 oz each)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp pepper
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
In a large saucepan, sauté onion and garlic powder in oil. Add the chicken, beans, broth,
chilies and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat: simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes.
Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream and heavy whipping cream.
*sometimes I add more chicken broth, sour cream and whipping cream to make it a little
If you are freezing the chili, I would recommend doubling the batch and eat one now
and one later. Make sure when freezing to let cool and then place in high quality
freezer bags and label the meal.
To cook: pull out of freezer and place in fridge the night before. Sometimes I leave it on the counter for an hour or two and then put in the fridge. It should be mostly thawed. Cook on the stove top til hot – stir well. Do not boil or overcook.
