Recipe: Hearty Chicken Chili

HEARTY CHICKEN CHILI

From Softstar Shoes (What shoe company sends a recipe card with your purchase?)

A perfectly fine meal, and a kid favourite. Serves 4 to 6.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons fat or oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 lb pasture-raised chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces (our boneless skinless chicken breasts work well here)
  • 3 – 4 cups cooked or 2 15 oz cans cannelloni beans (white kidney beans)
  • 1.5 cups cooked or 1 15 oz can black beans
  • ½ cup bean liquid, reserved from cooking or the cans
  • 1 cup chicken stock (recipe)
  • 1 4 oz diced green chilies
  • ½ cup milk or cream
  • Grated cheese, like cheddar
  • Chopped cilantro

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or stock pot over medium heat. 
  2. Add onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, and dried red pepper. Sauté 5 minutes. Push onions to the side of the pan.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Sauté around 5 minutes. 
  4. Add beans, bean liquid and chilies to the chicken. Simmer until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add the milk and cook for another few minutes.
  5. Season to taste, ladle into bowls and top with cheese, cilantro and more!
