White Chicken Chili to Warm You on a Cold Winter Day

on January 4, 2012

Another cold day here in the Northeast and I can’t even seem to warm up indoors.  I had yogurt for breakfast and as soon as I was done, vowed to have some soup for lunch.  What was I thinking?  I need all the help I can get from the inside out.

My aunt made this White Chicken Chili for my family on a visit a couple of years ago and I’ve kept it close by for days like this.  It’s delicious, hearty, and with the added cannelli beans…very filling.  Serve with a slice of warm, french bread and enjoy.

Remember…depending on your children’s age and ability to eat soup from a bowl, we often serve soups to our kids through straws.  You can easily blend this one down, or serve the chicken and beans with a little broth over brown rice or whole wheat pasta.

White Chicken Chili

1-2 T olive oil

2 lb boneless chicken thighs, chopped into small pieces

1 onion, chopped

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 green pepper, chopped

6-8 cups of low sodium chicken broth

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp cumin

2 cans of cannelli beans

1/2 C monterey jack cheese, shredded

2 T whole wheat flour with 1 C water

Sautee chicken, onion, garlic, and pepper in olive oil.  Add chicken broth, seasoning and bring to a slight boil.  Shake flour and water together in a jar and add slowly to broth to thicken.  Stir constantly to keep smooth.  Reduce heat and add beans and cheese.  Keep warm on low heat until ready to serve.
