White Bean Chicken Chili

This recipe is a fall/winter staple in our home! I'm not really a chili person in general, but really enjoy this take on it. I started making this when we were first married, having received the recipe (once again) from Lanser Family Favorites.

I brought this to an event last night and had several requests for the recipe. I promised to post it here.

2T oil
1 lb skinless chicken breasts cut in small pieces
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, cut up small
1 18 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
1/2 t oregano
1/4 t cumin
1 15 oz can white beans
2 cups frozen corn
optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions

Lightly brown chicken, onion, and garlic in the oil in a large pot. Stir in tomatoes, broth, and spices. Bring to boil and simmer 10 minutes. Add beans and corn. Return to boil, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. We (especially Josh!) top this with shredded colby jack cheese and sour cream.

And, for the record, it is STILL 80 degrees in Bloomington. Come on fall weather! I'm cooking like you're here already!

mmmm...we just had this at our new small group (*sniff, i miss the old one!) tonight. sooo good. i'm going to have to make this-when it cools down here too!

btw, i saw another idea in a magazine for your cord issue. not only a good idea, but it is a GREEN idea too! recycle toilet paper rolls by coiling up the cord so that it can fit into the tube and then label the tube w/ whatever cord it is. then they will lay neatly in a drawer too! genious!

I've made something similar to this before, but I think I will have to try this one. Thanks!

That sounds good - I just made a similar recipe with various peppers instead of the tomatoes and corn.

Thank You Jess! I am making this for Sunday dinner tomorrow. Did you double it for the dinner last weekend?
