Chili or soup...this recipe hits the spot!
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 6
  • ¼ cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium onion)
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 2-3 large chicken breasts, uncooked
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp dried cilantro (or 2 Tbsp fresh)
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil leaves
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 2 cans Great Northern beans, undrained
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • Tortilla chips
  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, except tomatoes and tortilla chips. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. About 15 minutes before serving, remove the chicken breasts and shred or cube chicken. Return cut up chicken to the pot and stir.
  4. To serve, top with fresh tomatoes and crumbled tortilla chips.
I use boneless, skinless chicken in this recipe and let it cook in the broth as the chili simmers. However, bone-in chicken can be used the same way OR this is a perfect use for left over rotisserie chicken or any other pre-cooked chicken. Just cube and add to the pot.
