White Bean Chicken Chili

If you haven't yet tried my traditional chili you're missing out. It is a huge hit at my house. Everyone loves it! It's super healthy and super easy to make.

Therefore after having so much success with the first one I decided to create a white bean chili with chicken instead of soy. And well it was incredible. I promise you that you'll love it. Again very easy to make. Not too many ingredients and very healthy. I approve this recipe.

White Bean Chili
1 3 lbs. package of white chicken breast
15 oz. can of red kidney beans
15 oz white beans
8 oz. canned corn
1 celery stalk
1 carrot 
1 green onion
1 cup of vegetable broth
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. fresh cilantro

1. clean the chicken and pack try
2. cook in oven at 350 for 25 minutes - allow it to cool enough to handle (20 minutes is fine)
3. chop the celery and carrots
3. bring the vegetable broth to a simmer and add in the celery and carrots - until they soften
4. slice/shred the chicken into thin strips 
5. add in chicken, beans and corn and stir 
6. then add in spices and cilantro. continue to mix in until it has a nice thick consistency
7. add in the salt and stir again and bring to simmer

It is best served with crackers :)
