white bean chicken chili

TableSetting_006

I came across this simple but delicious recipe from Shauna Niequist book, Bread & Wine – A love letter to life around the table with recipes. It is a fantastic read. You will laugh and possibly cry (if your that type) all in one sitting. She is raw, honest and downright hilarious. I modified the recipe just a bit (adding an onion… because, honestly, when is adding an onion not a good idea?). Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

1 yellow onion chopped
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
2 jars green salsa (fresh is nice too)
4 cans white beans
4 cups chicken broth

Instructions

In a dutch oven or stockpot, brown the onion (I use a splash of oil).
Add the chopped chicken breast, cook through.
Add beans, salsa & chicken broth.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 1 hour.

 

I like to serve it with sour cream, pepper jack cheese, limes and fresh cilantro.
