Chicken & White Bean Chili!

Posted Nov 21 2010 12:00am

Last night some of the girls came over to celebrate one of our friend’s birthdays!  We each made something for the occasion.  I was in the mood for something warm, delicious & easy so I whipped up a chicken & white bean chili in the slow cooker

It was my first time using dry beans & I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to prepare them!  Just soak for 2 hours and boil for 10 minutes in chicken stock before putting everything into the slow cooker. 

I sautéed these veggies for 10 minutes while the beans boiled away: green chiles, corn, onions & garlic. 

Then I laid 2 chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot  and covered with the sautéed veggies and boiling stock & beans… turned the slow cooker on high and went for a run!

I love the consistency of shredded chicken in my chili, so after 3 hours  I fished out the chicken breasts and shredded them on a cutting board with 2 forks.  It required almost no effort because the chicken was so tender

I put the chicken back into the slow cooker, gave it a good stir, and served it in big ceramic bowls and topped it off with some healthy, homemade cornbread! I am still perfecting that recipe, but everyone seemed to enjoy it.  Lucky for me there are still plenty of leftovers

Well, I’m off for a run before it gets dark.  It’s 3:45 so I only have about an hour left!  It’s a beautiful, fall day here in Chapel Hill. 

More to come!  xx
