I like my White Bean Chicken Chili with a bit of texture variety so I add several different beans, including kidney, garbanzo or black beans, or add more chopped vegetables, such as carrots and celery. I also see that some White Bean Chili Recipes use a can of tomatoes and this gives a great colour to the Chicken Chili.

The best meat to use is boneless chicken breast because it cooks quickly and easily and is beautifully flavored by the spices.

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (olive or vegetable)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
