White Chicken Chili


This White Chicken Chili is always a big hit. It has become a family favorite. A nice change from the regular tomato based chili with its flavorful blend of tender chunks of chicken, white beans and just enough zip. Additionally, the beauty with chili is you can use whatever you have, add to or take away, to make it your own. So don’t get hung up on exacts. If you only have 2 cans of beans, that works too. Is a half a pound of chicken the only thing you can scrounge up? Make it work! No need to be exact like in baking!
