This recipe took 1st place at my mother-in-law’s Chili Cook-off a couple years ago. There were 7 contestants and the only recipe to use chicken instead of beef won 1st place… YAHTZEE! I consider this a ‘semi-homemade’ recipe due to the McCormick’s seasoning packet, but HEY! A WIN is a WIN! Am I right? 🙂
It’s a must try for lazy cooks because it’s fool proof,… it comes out delicious every time!
Fall 2016 at my mom-in law’s Chili Cookoff/Harvest Party. I won a trophy 😀
Begin by dicing pre-cooked chicken, onion and garlic.
Saute diced onion and then add minced garlic for the last minute so it doesn’t burn.
Add pre-cooked chicken and salt and cook for a few minutes until it’s warmed through.
Then add the undrained can of tomatoes and beans, chicken broth or water, and entire contents of the seasoning packet. Use chicken broth instead of water for better flavor.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. At the end use salt and pepper as needed.
And here you have a big comfy pot of white chicken chili.
Oh… and don’t forget the “Fixins!”
