New Menu Monday: White Chicken Chili

I haven't posted a menu in a few weeks because the last few weeks have not been worth sharing. No offense to Rachel Ray and Kraft, but not everything they create is a hit with our family.

But today will be a hit! I know because I have tasted it before. I just haven't made it for the family. Thanks to my Freezer Meal group, I how have the opportunity to serve it to my family AND I didn't even have to make it! I just pulled it out of the freezer, let it thaw and warmed it up! (I love those women and the dinners they prepare!)

Today we will be having White Chicken Chili. It's original origins are unknown. My friend, Brenda, got the recipe from a neighbor who's recipe card had the name "Charlotte Dopp" on it. So, to you, Charlotte Dopp, whoever you are, we say a big thank you from our family and everyone in our neighborhood who has enjoyed this chili over the years!

White Chili
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 medium onion
1 Tablespoon oil
2 cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chilies
1 (14 oz) can chicken broth
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup whipping cream, 1 cup sour cream

In a large saucepan, saute chicken, onion, and garlic powder in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Add beans, chilies and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in whipping cream and sour cream. Serve immediately.

We are also having baked potatoes with this... Enjoy!

That sounds really good. I'd like a bowl of it right now because I'm cold. It's the first time I've felt that in Taiwan, at 59 degrees outside! I'm finally wearing a jacket. Thanks for the recipe, Aimee!

I know I already left a comment on this, but I'm looking at the recipe again. We have few choices in Taiwan for beans--I wish we had access to the white beans. I'll have to wait until we're back in the States to try this delicious sounding recipe.
