Transcript:White Bean and Chicken Crockpot ChiliHi, I'm Gary Chisholm with About.com, and today we're making white chili with chicken, using a recipe from About.com's Southern Food site.
Ingredients for the White Bean and Chicken Crockpot ChiliFor this recipe you'll need:
- 1-1/2 lbs chicken breast
- 1-1/2 cups of chicken broth
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) of white beans
- 1 (7-ounce) can diced green chiles
- 1 cup of chopped onions
- 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon of ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 small finely chopped jalapeno or serrano pepper
Make the White Bean and Chicken Crockpot ChiliFirst, cut the chicken into quarters so they fit more easily into crockpot. Chop the jalapeno. If you want to cut the heat, remove the seeds from the peppers before chopping.
In the slow cooker, combine chicken, jalapeno, beans, one and a half cups of chicken broth, garlic, onion, white pepper, salt, oregano, cumin, and cloves.
Tips for Cooking and Serving the White Bean and Chicken Crockpot ChiliCover and cook on low for six to eight hours. Stir occasionally. If the chicken is cooked already, then cut the time to four to six hours on low. Stir in green chiles. For a hotter taste, add a diced jalapeno or serrano.
Cover and simmer for one more hour. Serve the chili with warmed flour tortillas. You can add condiments like shredded Mexican cheese, sliced black olives, sour cream, lime juice or cilantro. I prefer to add cheese and sour cream to cut some of the heat while retaining the spicy flavor.
