I think one reason why I like this time of year is that I can come up with all sorts of one pot meals. Tonight I tweaked one of my oldie but goodies. I'm sure you know a good white bean chicken chili recipe . . . if not, just know that not all chili has to be brown! As my boys are lovers of all things meat, I made this one a wee bit heartier by adding Turkey Sausage. The beauty is that it sat cooking in the crock pot all day so I wasn't slaving over the stove!
WHITE CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE CHILI (CROCKPOT STYLE)
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast 1 lb turkey sausage, casings removed and chopped into chunks 2 cups chicken broth (sodium free) 1 small can white corn, drained 2 cans Great Northern beans, drained 1 small can chopped green chiles 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes, drained (I like fire roasted or garlic and onion) Garlic Powder to taste 1 packet White Bean Chili Seasoning Mix ( I just discovered this handy little packet by McCormick and it's so easy!) Pepper to Taste
Put all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low heat for about 8 hours. Before serving, take the chicken breasts out of the crock pot and place on a chopping board. Use a fork and knife and shred the chicken. Put shredded chicken back into the crock pot.
That's it! Scoop into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings! Just not too heavy handed on the cheese!

You can also do this on the stovetop by browning the chicken and sausage before adding it to all of the ingredients in the pot. Simmer at medium heat for 20 minutes.
On another note, if you normally subscribe to my posts and haven't received anything in a couple of days, my apologies! I'm no technical genius and have been working on a couple of new kinks! Thanks for your patience!
