"This is my family's favorite chili . Serve over rice and sprinkle with shredded Monterey jack or Cheddar and a basket of tortilla chips for a great meal! I have also substituted 1 of the cans of cannellini beans with black beans, and it tasted great." — Donna Holub

I found this recipes elsewhere about 8 years ago and I have made it at least twice a week ever since because my family loves it. I did notice some differences though, I use 3 cans of Great Northern Beans, 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of salt, cube the chicken instead of "shredding it" & saute it by itself, use 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead of 4 and after adding the cornmeal to thicken I then simmer the chili for 45 minutes, stirring very often to prevent sticking - The chili gets nice and thick. I serve this with tortilla chips and I think Fresh Chopped Cilantro (although optional)adds another taste dimension to this Chili. We top with shredded cheese and sour cream. Add the Hot Sauce to your taste after the Chili is done.
My husband really liked this recipe, but I didn't care for the texture (with the corn meal added in). I also substituted kidney beans, so maybe it's better if you don't substitute.
This recipe was awesome. To thicken the soup up, I added 3/4 cup sour cream and one can of creamed corn. For added flavor, I added cilanto at the very end to kick it up a notch. I served this with corn bread for a filling meal that's not too heavy. ENJOY!!!
Very good chili! I made this for a small group of friends, and two people asked
for the recipe.
I cut back on the chicken broth slightly, and doubled the chili powder. Without
the extra chili powder it just didn't quite have enough of that chili flavor. But it's
those changes it's really great.
Great recipe!! Not your typical chili. Just be aware that you need the rice or you'll have soup!
Exceptional chili! I had rave reviews on this, and it tasted great the next day. I did not add the cornmeal,I exchanged a can of black beans for the white beans, and next time I think I will add a little more hot pepper sauce and chili sauce for a little more heat. Great recipe
I changed the recipe a bit by adding some extra spice and using black beans instead cannellini beans. It made great leftovers and even tasted better the second day.
This is one of my favorite recipes! I leave out the beans though and add more chicken. Tastes great on a chilly day!
