Creamy White Chicken Chili

About: I live in Minnesota, USA. I've been a Maker hobbyist for many years. It's fun to be Geeky.

This recipe is a family favorite that was passed down from my mother. It is a perfect family meal for those bitter cold winter days. When you need some warm comfort food, I encourage you to give this a try. My boys say, "it's like a blanket for your tummy."

Enjoy the instructional video. The recipe is found in Step 1.

Step 1: Recipe - Gather Ingredients

Creamy White Chicken Chili

  • 1 lb Boneless Chicken 1/2" cubes (Any poultry would be great. I used Pheasant this time.)
  • 1 medium Onion Chopped
  • 1 1/2 teas Garlic Powder
  • 1T. Vegetable Oil
  • 2 cans 15 1/2 oz Great Northern Beans Rinsed and Drained
  • 1 can 14 1/2 oz Chicken Broth
  • 1 or 2 cans 4oz Chopped Green Chilies
  • 1 teas Salt
  • 1 teas Ground Cumin
  • 1 teas Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 teas Black Pepper
  • 1/4 teas Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 cup (8 oz) Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) Heavy Whipping Cream

In a large pot or dutch oven, sauté the chicken, onion, and garlic powder in oil until the chicken is no longer pink and the onion is translucent.

Add beans, broth, chillies and seasoning.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream and whipping cream.

Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for up to a few days. Serves 4-7

Customize

The recipe can be customized to your heart's content. You can change the type and/or amount of poultry. I have made this with chicken, turkey, and pheasant. (You can speed things up by using a small rotisserie chicken from the store.) To adjust the spiciness, change the type and/or amount of green chilies and cayenne pepper. Also, you could switch out the great northern beans for another type of white bean. Add a bit more broth if you like your chili a little soupier.

Step 2: Cook

  • Start by warming up a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add a splash of oil and sauté the chicken, onion, and garlic powder until the chicken is no longer pink and the onion is translucent.
  • Then add the beans, broth, chillies, seasoning, and mix well.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream and heavy whipping cream.
  • Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for up to a few days.
  • Serves 4-7

You may serve the chili in bowls or large mugs and enjoy. I hope you and your family had fun with this recipe.
