A Dinner Party!

Once again food with style has featured one of my dishes with some WONDERFUL cooks! I am tickled each time she does! She posts daily and the pictures and blogs are a treat in themselves!
Last night we had a dinner party with a group of friends. Hubby made the White Chili this time and was it good! He used less spices which made it more mild. As usual, the chili was a big hit! We had so much fun and laughed until we had tears running down our cheeks!
"Laughter is the best medicine"!
1 year ago I posted the While Chili recipe after camping in my little vintage trailer with hubby in the Arizona desert. I cooked it dutch~oven style. This time, on the stove. Either way, it is yummy! Make up a batch!
White Chicken Chili
Daughter Shelli's Recipe
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 med. yellow onion, chopped
3 teaspoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cans - 15 1/2 oz. Great Northern Beans, rinsed & drained
2 cans - 14 1/2 oz. chicken broth
FOR a MORE MILD chili, add 1/2 of the green chilies & spice ingredients.
(We did it with this batch and it was good and not to spicy!)
3 cans - 4 oz. chopped green chilies
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teapoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream

In a saucepan, saute chicken, onion & garlic powder in oil until cooked. Add beans, broth, chilies & seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer uncovered for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat & stir in sour cream and whipping cream. Let stand for 10 minutes for sause to thicken. Serve immediatley.

One of my favorite recipes. I have never made it with whipping cream, just with the sour cream on top. But it is always a hit.
