17. "White" Chicken Chili

So after going through all of the white chicken chili recipes on weightwatchers.com and not really being satisfied with any of them I decided to just create my own. Now this is probably not traditional white chicken chili but it was so so good! This was rich and hearty and just spicy enough to tingle your nose for only 7 points a serving! You will notice that some of the ingredients are doubles, that is because you are going to use them twice and I don't want to be confusing!

"White" Chicken Chili - 7 points per serving
Serves 6 (1 cup each)

16 oz Chicken breast, skinless, boneless, raw
15 oz canned great Northern beans, drained and rinced
2 medium onion(s)
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
30 oz Del Monte Diced Tomatoes With Jalapenos, drained
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp Oregano leaves
1 1/2 tsp Oregano leaves (again)
2 tsp Ground cumin
1 tsp ground red pepper
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cup(s) Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mexican-Style Cheese
14.5 oz fat-free chicken broth
1 cup frozen corn kernels
4 oz Diced Green Chilies

1. Set a frying pan or skillet to medium low heat. Once the pan is hot add your chicken. Sprinkle with 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1 1/2 tsp oregano leaves. Flip your chicken and let it get a nice sear, wait and do the second side, then finish pan frying in any way you like. When the chicken is done remove it from the pan, set it aside and let it cool. (I actually put mine in the fridge over night and made the chili the next day.)

2. Add vegetable oil to a large skillet or pot on medium low. Slice both onions thinly and add to heated pan. Add salt, pepper and minced garlic. Saute until the onions become a golden color.

3. Dice your cooked chicken into small cubes and add to pot. Add tomatoes, green chilis, beans, corn, chicken broth and the rest of your spices to the pot. Stir thoroughly.

5. Cover and simmer for 30 - 45 minutes until just before desired thickness.

6. Turn the stove off and add 2 cups of mexican cheese to the pot. Stir and serve immediately.

Enjoy! Perfect for a cold winter night!
