Chicken Chili

Just had this last night and thought I'd re-post it for you newcomer's. Enjoy!!

Linking up to Kellie's Fall Festival.

Oh, a shameless cry for help-can anyone tell me how to make a cute banner?? My blog looks like a hot mess...

Happy Fall!!

I have really been getting in the mood for Fall with this cooler weather we are having. This is one of my favorite meals to have. In fact, at our rehearsal dinner we had two different chili's and the fixin's. Needless to say, it was a very casual event.

Chicken Chili

1 lb. chicken cooked and cubed*
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1(14 oz) can chicken broth
2(14 oz) cans great northern beans(drain one can)
1(3 oz) can chopped green chilies, with liquid
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano

Saute the onion in a little bit of olive oil until tender. Add chicken and garlic. Cook until chicken is done. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer for at least 15 minutes. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, and tortilla chips if desired.

*I like to cut my chicken while it is still somewhat frozen, if using frozen chicken. It cooks quicker that way and seems easier to cut.
Last night I only had one can of great northern beans so I substituted a can of black beans. If you like the chili soupier you can add another can of broth.
Hope you enjoy!!

Hi Elise,
Wow that really looks great-I'm printing it out and as soon as it cools down here in Seattle I'm going to make it. We are having some pretty warm weather here-Not at all normal for Seattle!
Hope you are having a great week-I actually did some fall decorating last night-just a "little" bit! :)

OK~couldn't wait...made it for lunch~it is excellent! I added corn and used the black beans and northern beans...I thought the black beans added color...We all loved it:)

I'll be adding it to my recipe blog (PB & J) and giving you the credit!!!

Yum! I am going to print this off and make it this weekend.

The houses on my blog are crazy! I would loose my kids in one of those! They probably never see each other in there! They are always trying to "out do" each other! Someone is very unhappy dontcha think ;)

Have a great week!

Tks for sharing this recipe. I love any kind of soup, chili, stews! Never had chicken in my chili, but I'm going to try it.

Oh good I have been looking for some different types of soups so I can have them for the fall, if it will just get here.

I saw on someones blog where they use picnic or something like that and made their banners with pics they had...If I see it again I will send you the link so you can play around with it. I want to have my whole page done but just don't have the funds to do it right now.
