Chicken Chili

I received this recipe from a dear friend and have made it often, especially in the winter. It is a good way to use leftover chicken and white beans, but it is also good with purchased roasted chicken, canned white beans and canned chicken broth. By sauteing the onions, celery, and garlic it is a very quick meal and the sauted veggies give a really good flavor.

How to Make Chicken Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. If you aren't using bought or leftover chicken, boil chicken breasts, saving broth. Add salt, pepper, and spices to water while cooking to flavor chicken and broth. Chop or chunk chicken. Return chicken to broth. While chicken is cooking, chop onions, celery, and garlic and heat oil. Saute onion, celery and garlic in oil slowly until they are tender. Don't brown garlic as it will become a bit bitter. Drain. Add all ingredients to chicken/broth mixture. Cook slowly until flavors combine well.
