Stovetop Meal

Last night we went to the H's house for dinner.  Poor Anna's oven is out but she still made a great meal!  We had such a good time.  However, I can't imagine not having an oven.  It would make cooking quite difficult.  I mean, I couldn't do ANY baking.  Not good!  BUT, if you find yourself in the position of not having an oven, here is a quick and easy meal to try. 

White chicken chilli.  I've made it before and it is so good.  It makes just enough for four...or enough for two with lunch for the next day.  D said it was good.  The cheddar biscuits were the perfect pairing.  Sometime soon I'd like to try the red chicken chili....mmmm!  Now, we just need some cold weather!

Chicken Chili
1 1/2 pound (I used two boneless skinless breasts and it was perfect) chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup broth (calls for chicken but I used veggie)
1 teaspoon garlic powder,
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano (didn't have)
1/2 teaspoon cilantro (didn't have)
1/8 teaspoon red pepper (Didn't have) - appears I need to shop for spices!
1 can chopped green chiles
19oz can white kidney beans undrained (I used two cans that were 12 oz each)
2 green onions, sliced (Forgot these but they are good)

Heat a small amount of olive oil in a pan.  Add the chicken and onions, cook 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked.  Stir in brother, chiles, and spices.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Stir in beans and simmer for five minutes. Top with onions and garnish with cheese if desired.  Enjoy!
