You will notice that some of my albums are "empty" on my Facebook page and that some pages and pictures are missing on here and on Fibro, Fit and Fab!. Don't worry - they won't stay that way. :) In light of some recent events, I've had to watermark my photos and designed images. Until that is done and I get a chance to upload them, my FREE Fibro Banners and Badges and Inspirational Designs {By Me} pages will be down on Fibro, Fit and Fab!, and the albums under the same (or almost the same) names on my Facebook page will be empty, and pictures will be deleted and watermarked at various times for as long as it takes to get that done. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for understanding! In the mean time, if there is an image you would like that you saw or have an idea for a new one, feel free to email me or leave me a comment, and I'll do what I can to get one to you. :)

White Chicken Chili (Soy, Nut, Fish, Wheat and Egg-Free, Can Be Milk-Free)


I am a huge chili fan.  I have always wanted to make White Chicken Chili, but never knew how to go about it.  I went to Allrecipes.com and found this recipe as submitted by JELZA that I knew I could work with and modify to create the perfect White Chicken Chili for my family.  The result?  SUCCESS!  The kiddos liked it, hubby loved it and I was beyond pleased with not only the taste but the ease of preparation.
 
This recipe is soy (if you use all soy-free ingredients), fish, nut, wheat and egg-free, and can be milk-free (see variations).  I hope you enjoy it!
 
White Chicken Chili
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive oil
 
1 Tablespoon full-fat, salted butter
 
1 to 3 raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
 
1 bottle (24 or 48 oz.) soy-free Great Northern Beans (I recommend Randall's), drained and rinsed
 
1 can/box (14.5 to 32 oz.) soy-free chicken broth or stock (I recommend Kitchen Basics)
 
1 to 2 cans (4.5 oz.) soy-free chopped green chilies (I recommend Old El Paso)
 
1 teaspoon soy-free onion salt (I recommend McCormick's)
 
1 teaspoon soy-free garlic salt (I recommend McCormick's)
 
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
 
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
 
1/2 teaspoon ground white or black pepper
 
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
 
1 to 2 Cups soy-free sour cream (I recommend Daisy brand) (optional)
  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large soup pot over medium heat; add chicken (amount based on preference) and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 to 15 minutes.
     
  2. Mix Great Northern beans (amount based on preference), chicken broth/stock (amount based on preference), green chilies (amount based on preference), onion salt, garlic salt, cumin, oregano, pepper and red pepper flakes (amount based on preference or you can leave it out entirely) into the chicken mixture; stir well and bring mixture to a boil.  (Note: When I first made this chili, I missed the part about draining and rinsing the beans.  The recipe turned out fine, but we got a little more of the fibrous effects of the recipe than we otherwise would have if I'd have drained and rinsed the beans, if you know what I mean.  Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that it is not a flavor issue but a fiber issue that you are asked to drain and rinse them, so if you have eaten these beans with the liquid in the past and would like to keep the liquid, you most certainly may.)
     
  3. Reduce the heat and allow the chili to simmer until the flavors have blended, about 30 minutes.
     
  4. Remove the chili from the heat and, if desired, stir in the sour cream (amount based on preference) until well incorporated before serving or dollop the tops of individual bowls with sour cream before serving.
Makes about 8 servings.
 
Variation:
  • Milk-Free: Either leave out the butter and the sour cream or replace them with dairy-free butter (such as Earth Balance) and dairy-free plain yogurt (such as SoDelicious).

    1. Thank you for stopping by and commenting! If you try it, you'll have to let me know what you think! It was a huge hit with the family, and I'm making it this weekend, too, for a chili cook-off at our church. Wish me luck! :)

  3. {Melinda} This looks amazing, Julie. I love all kinds of chili. I only wish my family did. By the time I take out all the things they don't like, I'm left with soup! :)

    1. Thank you, Melinda! For all the things my kids will eat, they don't seem to like the things I remember growing up on. For example, they don't like just plain mac & cheese very often - they want it to have ham in it or be like pizza or taco mac. They don't like chicken noodle soup, but will humor me and eat a little of my homemade kind. They like PB&J or grilled cheese and pizza, but only one of my kiddos likes spaghetti. I'm just glad they are willing to try new things and will eat what is served (at least a little bit) even if they don't care for it! Makes me feel like one blessed mommy for sure!!! :)

  6. This looks delicious! I don't make chili often for my family because my husband can't tolerate too many beans or spices, but I think he might be able to eat (and enjoy!) this. Thanks for a great looking recipe!

  11. Visiting from SITS! Looks like a great recipe! There is so much due diligence involved with making sure your ingredients are soy free or gluten free! My family used to have to eat gluten free because my youngest had a wheat allergy, and although he's now outgrown it, we still have recipes from those days that we use. I love trying things like this! Thanks!
