another successful and delicious recipe from mels kitchen cafe. my friend melissa made this for me when i went for lunch recently and it was so good, i made it for dinner the next night. the whole family loved it.
white bean chicken chili ~ slow cooker
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3.5 cups great northern beans (cooked or from the can)
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
(2) 4oz cans chopped green chilies
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup whipping cream
place chicken breasts in bottom of slow cooker. add the onion, garlic, beans, chilies and all of the spices (do not add the sour cream or whipping cream yet). pour chicken broth over top and stir mixture to incorporate dry spices. cook on low for 7 hours. remove the chicken the last 30 minutes of cooking to shred and then put it back in the soup. stir in the sour cream and whipping cream until smooth. continue to cook for the remaining 30 minutes.
this recipe yields about 6 servings. i will double it next time (husband was bummed there wasn't enough for left overs).
