White Bean And Chicken Chili

White Bean And Chicken Chili

This recipe is ridiculous & obviously was never vetted by the powers that be before posting. CANNED BEANS DO NOT NEED TO BE COOKED FOR 2 HOURS "UNTIL TENDER". Good friggin grief. They're ALREADY COOKED & TENDER. The beans in this recipe shouldn't be added until the very end, unless you're toothless &/or enjoy mush. Sadly, so many sites are now hunting for "new" crockpot recipes, that they think any recipe can be made in a crockpot. "White Chili" is definitely not one of them. Same recipe can be made in less than a 1/4 of the time on one's stovetop. Better quality as well. Super tasty recipe it actually had flavor, which I have been looking for during my trek through slow cooker recipesI tweaked the recipefollowed all except: did NOT pre-cook beans (just started cooking them along with everything else); added 3.5 lbs of semi-frozen no-skin chicken breasts/tenderloins straight into broth up front; added 1 jar of Ortega green salsa; 2x amount of beans; 1.75x cumin; 2x garlic; did NOT add water; kept chicken broth at 4 cups; cooked on low for 7 hours. Removed 3 cups of the bean & broth mix to puree (I pureed it in a plastic cup with a hand blender) and then put it back in the pot. Meanwhile, removed chicken, shredded it with a fork and added it back in. Stirred and refrigerated everything in the pot overnight and served the next evening with low-fat shredded Mexican cheese and light sour cream. Delicious! [Doubling the recipe maxes out the crock pot, but ensures maximum leftovers for the rest of the week!] Continue reading >>

White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili in honor of World Diabetes Day. A diabetic friendly meal that is healthy, comforting and delicious. The Virtual Potluck team has paired up with Anolon and Microplane to bring you some delicious, diabetic friendly meal ideas and to raise awareness about diabetes. Our very own Diabetic Foodie has been our guide and organizer for this very important event. More than 371 million people have diabetes. Half of people with diabetes dont know they have it. Half of the people who die from diabetes are under the age of 60 In 2012, 4.8 million people died from and 471 billion USD was spent on diabetes Just because this White Chicken Chili is diabetic friendly, we are not sacrificing flavor here. In fact this chili was so good, my family decided it was the new favorite. I will be making it again and again. It was packed with flavor and so filling but unlike red chili we werent reaching for the Tums afterwards. To make the chili diabetic friendly, I used lean white meat chicken, a small amount of olive oil for sauting the chicken and vegetables and low-sodium chicken broth. I used can beans, so I drained and rinsed them to wash off the extra sodium found in the canning liquids. I did not add any additional salt to this recipe and I thought it was plenty flavorful. If salt is not an issue in your diet, you could certainly add more to taste. I kicked up the protein level with a small amount of quinoa and I think it added in some great texture and rounded out this hearty dish. I garnished with a little cilantro and fresh tomatoes. Avocado and Greek yogurt would also make great toppings. Anolon and Microplane are generously sponsoring a fantastic giveaway on each of the Virtual Potluck Blogs. Be sure to check out each one for a fabulous diabetic friendly dish plus a Continue reading >>

White Bean Chicken Chili

White Bean Chicken Chili

Im not sure if thiswhite bean chicken chilideserves the title chili. Does substituting chicken for ground beef still count as a chili? Well, you can look at this yummy dish as a chili or a very hearty soup. Either way its loaded with goodness. Cannellini beans, if you arent familiar with them, are large white beans with a firm texture and nutty flavor. They hold their shape well and are therefore used in soups (such as minestrone soup), salads, stews and numerous other healthy dishes. 4 Things you may not have known about cannellini beans: With a score of 31, they are very low on the glycemic index so they are great for people with diabetes. They have been found to help protect against colorectal adenomas, which is the 3rd most common cancer in men and women. They have a detoxifying effect on the body. They are a powerhouse of antioxidants which protect your skin and the rest of your body from free radicals. { source } The beauty of soups, stews or chilis is that you can use whatever you have on hand. Substitutions are what make these types of recipes so versatile and your own. So dont get hung up on exacts. If you dont have cannellini beans, use northern beans. If youre not a big fan of cilantro (which Im not) you can just omit it or use dried herbs asit has less flavor. You get the idea though. Its a very versatile recipe which is why I love it so much. But I REALLY love it because 4 out of 4 inour house like it and you KNOW that doesnt happen often! 1 chicken breast, cooked and diced or shredded Continue reading >>

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

If it was socially acceptable to hibernate all winter and watch Netflix all day I would. Especially if we had an unlimited supply of this healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili. Give me a good book, my Insanity DVDs and a crock pot full of Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili and there’s a good chance I wouldn’t leave until March (or May if you live in Ohio!). The day I made this chili was the best day of the week. It’s hearty, zippy and feel-good, but healthy at the same time. And it’s bursting at the seams with comforting flavor. Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for days! So how does this all come together, you ask? Easy! Throw it in the slow cooker. The only trick is to get out your blender and mix a cup of the chicken broth with the yogurt to get it blended together. If you just dump the yogurt in the pot it will be lumpy and won’t mix well. When you blend it with the stock it turns the yogurt into a smooth consistency that easily mixes with the rest of the soup. You’re going to be amazed how easy this is. You might even think you’re doing it wrong. But you’re not! And just so you can mentally prepare yourself, you will need a giant bowl or mug, all the delicious healthy toppings (because we love toppings), a ridiculously comfy couch and Netflix (obvi). Oh, and about 8 containers to meal prep and enjoy this addictingly healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for the rest of the week. Another great recipe with beans is our healthy and delicious one pot Black Bean Soup with Lime Salsa. Give both recipes a try and come back here to tell us which one you liked best!

Diabetic Recipe: White Chili - Recipes For Diabetics

1 small jalapeo chile pepper, seeded and minced 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts Put beans and water in a large pot and bring to a boil on top of the stove. Boil for 2 minutes, turn off the heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Drain beans and place in slow cooker. Add 5 cups of the broth to the slow cooker, along with the onion, garlic, cilantro, mint, parsley, bay leaf (if using), oregano, thyme, and chile peppers. Stir well. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours. If cooking on HIGH, stir after 2 hours of cooking time. About 30 minutes before chili will be done, in a large skillet, poach chicken breast in the remaining 2 cups chicken broth until just tender, about 15 minutes. Cool and cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Reserve chicken and broth. When beans are tender, remove about 3 cups of the beans and mash with a potato masher or in the food processor. Return mashed beans to the cooker and add the chicken pieces. Stir well. If cooking on LOW, change setting to HIGH. Add some of the reserved broth as needed to thin the chili to desired consistency (chili should be thick). Cook, uncovered, until chicken is heated through (about 10 to 15 minutes).
