Excellent recipe!!! My husband does probably 99.9% of the cooking in the house because he loves to do it and he's MUCH better at it than I am. I decided to make this for him and he loved it! Since I made it, and he loved it, I know that this is truly a winner!
This soup takes a long time to prep, and the final result was disappointing. We followed the recipe exactly. I felt that the oregano did not marry well with the other flavors. My husband said the chicken tasted like boiled chicken. Kids didn't enjoy it either. Sorry, just not to our liking.
This was really tasty with a dollop of sour cream. Loved it! I also added a can of corn and blended 2 of the cans of beans for a thicker soup. Plus I substituted jalapenos for the chiles because I love hot stuff! I might use less broth next time (ended up simmering for much longer to boil off some of the liquid). Either way, really great flavor!
I was a little scared of all the spices but I followed the recipe ingredients to the letter. I prefer the chicken to be tender so I fried it in olive oil and a little cajun pepper at the end of the process and added to the chili last. The results were GREAT!! Yummy!
Oh so good! I mostly followed the recipe but I forget to get thyme and couldn't find any bay leaves. I used two small cans of green chiles instead of fresh. I added a liberal amount of hot sauce, and about 3 tablespoons of diced jalapenos. Perfect amount of spicy! I also used a variety of white beans. Pinto, great northern, and cannellini.
We loved this recipe. I had to make a few alterations when I didn't have exactly everything needed. I used 1 can no-salt mushrooms, drained. I cooked the chicken on my Foreman grill, but sautéed the rest of the vegetables. I didn't have green chilies so I used 2-4 oz. cans, somewhat drained, and I didn't have any red pepper. I used A LOT more broth, besides the 2-14 oz. cans, I used 1 large can. I cooked everything in the slow cooker all day and then served each bowl with some shredded cheese and a small dollop of sour cream. Also served with cornbread. Oh yeah, I also added some extra cumin to the recipe to make up for all the broth I had added.
This chili is excellent. I used my food processor to grind the chicken breast. I made this for my father who does not like chicken and will not eat it. He loved it and asked for more!
Great recipe! We did add the corn as suggested for some of these white chili recipes and reduced the amount of chicken broth to try to thicken the chili to make it more substantial and less like a soup. It worked perfectly and we really enjoyed it. We will make it again!
