Creamy White Chili

I love white chicken chili. I have tried about five different recipes for it and this is one of the best.

Ingredients

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1 medium onion, chopped

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 TB vegetable oil

2 cans (15 1/2 oz.) Great Northern Bean, rinsed and drained

1 can 14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth

2 (4 oz.) cans chopped green chilies

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 Cup sour cream

1/2 cup whipping cream

Instructions

In a large saucepan, sauté chicken, onion and garlic powder in oil until chicken is no longer pink.

Add the beans, broth, chilies, and seasonings.

Bring to boil.

Reduce heat; simmer uncovered, for 30 minutes. This will thicken the Chilli and bring out all the wonderful flavor. 

Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and cream. Serve immediately.

I found that this recipe can get spicy if you put to much cayenne pepper. So go easy on the cayenne pepper if you want to make the Chilli milder.  If you are like me and like a little spice in your life add a pinch more. Let me know how you like it in the comments below, This is supper easy to make and I know you and your family will love it.

Quick Chicken A La King

This is one of my husbands favorites. It is also really quick and easy. I make this anytime I have left over chicken or turkey. You can also use canned chicken and it tastes just as good.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup diced green pepper

1/2 tbsp butter

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 1/4 cup milk

3 cups of chicken or turkey cubed

1 tbsp pimientos

dash of pepper

Directions:

Start off by cubing your Chicken or Turkey. I make this a lot when I have left overs after Thanksgiving or other times I cook a large turkey or chicken.  

Cook green pepper In butter until tender.

Add soup; stir and blend.

Gradually add milk; gently stir in remaining ingredients. 

Heat until sauce is bubbling and flavors are blended. 

Serve over toast or rice. This is a quick and easy meal that will warm you up and help you use up your leftover turkey after thanksgiving.
