White Bean Chili

    A good change from tomato-based chili - but a little more time consuming than chili with ground meat....chopping and cooking the chicken takes time. I wonder how it would be with ground chicken? Might try that next time. And maybe as an earlier reviewer said, with a little less water so that it's thicker. I forgot the lime! I'll have to try that with the the little bit of leftovers.

    I made this for a soup potluck and had several people asking me for the recipe. I made it the night before and the next morning put it in my crock pot on low until lunch. I think that really let the flavors meld together. I left out the cilantro and I did reduce the number of chicken breasts to 4 which was still more than enough.

    This is one of my favorite chili recipes. I always receive rave reviews. As a hint to speed things up, I sometimes use a rotisserie chicken from the deli when limited on time. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! Easy to make - freezes well too. Flavor was great - easier on the stomach than regular chili.

    This chili is OUTSTANDING! I make it a couple of times a year and everyone I have ever made it for LOVES it. We are making it after Thanksgiving with leftover turkey! YUM!

    This was very good. I thought it a little heavy on the chicken, though. Next time I'll just use four chicken breasts and possibly shred the meat rather having it be in bite-sized pieces. I thought the lime juice what what really "made" this meal and was so glad we had some on hand!

    This is one of my favorite "white chili" recipes. My family loves it and I agree with the reviewer who said the lime juice makes it. I usually serve it with lime wedges for extra lime flavor. I use 8 chicken breasts halves (which I believe is 4 whole chicken breasts) so I'm not sure what the reviewers who said they reduced the chicken to 4 breasts used. I think 3-4 whole breasts (6-8 halves) is just perfect.
