Make me a Meal Monday - White Bean Chicken Chili

One of my favorite winter meals is White Bean Chicken Chili. It is SUPER easy and something you can freeze very easily as well. Here are all the ingredients that you will need

2 chicken breasts (I use chicken tenders that I cut off of the breasts before freezing
1 large jar of Northern Beans
1 can of chicken broth
1 large yellow onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 small can of green chilies
1 tsp of EVOO
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tsp cumin
S&P to taste



Start by cooking the onion and garlic in a tsp of olive oil
Once onion is partially see through - add the diced chicken
Cook until no longer pink
Add the rest of your ingredients - chicken broth, beans, green chilies, and spices
Let cook for an additional 15 minutes and then serve warm
I always top my chili with hot pepper jack cheese and tortilla strips
No pressure to make this delicious soup - but it did win the Chili Cookoff 3 years in a row when I was at college (and back then I could barely boil a pot of water - so if that doesn't tell you how easy it is - I don't know what will).

Happy cooking!
