{Yum-Yum} White Bean Chicken Chili

Let me start by saying-this chili would not be considered a normal meal in our house.  My husband and I aren't exactly "health freaks" but we try really hard.  But I must say WE LOVE FOOD and trying new restaurants and recipes is kind of our "thing. So when I stumbled upon this recipe it made all those early morning/late night cardio and training sessions worth it!

             - White Bean Chicken Chili -
1.5 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breast cut into 1/2" cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon canola oil 
3-4 ounce cans of chopped green chilies
3-15.5 ounce cans of great white northern beans, rinsed and drained
1-14.5 ounce can of chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 and 1/2 cup of sour cream 

In a large saucepan saute the chicken, onions and garlic powder in oil for 1-2 minutes.  Add beans, broth, chilies and seasonings to the crock pot.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir in sour cream and whipping cream and serve.  Serves 4-6.

We made the chili this weekend and entered it in a cook off competition.  All though we didn't win-ours definitely stood out! (Some were calling it the albino chili because of the light color.) And everyone must of liked it because our crock pot was empty!  This quick and easy recipe will be a hit for anyone hosting a super bowl party this weekend. Add some tortilla chips to it and you are set! 

Happy party planning!
