Perfect White Chicken Chili Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chile powder *divided
  • 3 tablespoons cumin divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
  • 3 cups chopped onion (2 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic or more if you love garlic (4–5 large cloves)
  • 3 15-ounce cans white beans drained
  • 2 4-ounce cans chopped green chiles (hot or mild depending on your preference)
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 4–6 cups low-salt chicken broth
  • 6 cups shredded cheese divided (half Monterey Jack half cheddar)
  • 2 cups sour cream divided

Garnish:

  • Chopped scallions
  • Chopped cilantro leaves
  • Your favorite hot sauce
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese

• A note on chili powder: One of my secrets to great chili is to use two or three different chili powders for a great depth of flavor. For this chili I used New Mexican and Chipotle chile powders.INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spice and Roast the Chicken: Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spread chicken out in a roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with 2 teaspoons chili powder 1 tablespoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch or two of cayenne. Roast for 30 minutes. Shred or cut into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. Cook the Chili: In a large pot heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sauté onion and garlic over medium heat for 5 minutes or so until tender. Add beans shredded chicken chilies oregano 2 tablespoons chile powder 2 tablespoons cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (or more to taste). Add 4 cups of chicken broth reserving the rest for thinning the chili to your desired consistency. Stir to combine and simmer gently on low for 20 minutes. (to keep the chicken tender do not let the pot boil)
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes or so before proceeding. With the pot still off the heat stir 3 cups of cheese into the pot 1 cup at a time. Then stir in 1 cup of sour cream. (Or for Dean’s richer creamier version add all 6 cups of cheese to the pot and 2 cups of sour cream) Bring the pot back to a gentle simmer over low heat (to keep the dairy products from separating don’t boil). Simmer the chili for 15-20 minutes adjusting with additional chicken broth if you like. A method I like to use for great added texture is to use a potato-masher in the pot to mash half the chicken and beans. Then stir to combine with the rest.
  4. Serve chili in bowls with garnishes on top or on the side.
