White Chicken Chili- New version!

I've decided to start with my very favorite recipe. WHITE CHICKEN CHILI! I love this chili, it is a perfect day to make this, and I can't wait to have it for dinner tonight. Here is my first "healthy" recipe, I've omitted the sour cream, and the whipping cream, leaving us with a good broth based chili packed with flavor!

White Chicken Chili

1 lb. chicken, cubed
1 med. onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 tsp. olive oil

Saute those ingredients, and then add:

2 cans great northern beans, rinsed and drained (WF Organic, is best)
2 cans of whole kernel corn (WF Organic, is best)
1 can chicken broth (Organic, any brand)
1 can green chilies, diced
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper ( I use 1/8th tsp.)

Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for about 5 minutes. Serve with a salad of lettuce, grape tomatoes, and cucumbers. Add 1 TBSP. of my new fave dressing- Newman's Own Organic light Balsamic Vinagrette.

Voila! Also for all you Weight Watcher point fans, I will be figuring out the points for each of my recipes!!! I am back "on point", try this out, it is heavenly!!!

*I've started using Organic canned products when I can find them because they don't have all the preservatives and additives, and my personal opinion, they do taste better. Western Family has alot of their canned foods that are USDA Organic- check them out!!!
