Sunday we made a really good parmesan chicken, which I'll post about later. However, there were several pieces left-over. Normally this wouldn't be a "problem." However, my parents, as mentioned earlier , are moving next week. So, I was trying to decide how I could use that chicken. I decided to offer to make chicken chili for my parents, who are returning from closing on the house tonight. This recipe can be made with fresh or left-over chicken. It turned out great and uses up that extra chicken you may have. For a complete meal, serve with cornbread and a green salad.
1.5 lbs (or 1.5-2 cups) chicken breast, cut into cubes
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1 can chopped green chiles
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon cilantro leaves
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 can white kidney beans, undrained
2 green onions
Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and onions; cook 4-5 minutes.
Stir in broth, green chiles, and spices; simmer 15 minutes. Stir in beans. Simmer 5 minutes. Top with onions. Garnish with a white cheese, if desired. Makes 4 cups.
