White Bean Chicken Chili

This is one of my most favorite recipes!!! I like to serve with a little cheddar, freshly grated on top and some crackers.


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic
  • 2 cans (15-1/2 oz each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 oz) chicken broth
  • 2 cans (4 oz each) chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. In large saucepan, saute chicken, onion, and garlic in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Add the beans, broth, chilies and seasonings. Bring to boil.
  2. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 min. Stir in sour cream and cream. Serve immediately.


Vegetarian? No problem. I have successfully made this vegetarian several times for my sister. Just add another 2 cans of great northern beans to replace the chicken and use vegetable broth instead of chicken. Its just as good!
