Low-carb White Chicken Chili

White Chili

This is the low-carb version of a favorite.  Pretend those are green beans in the photo instead of northern.

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2” cubes (Hint: When in a hurry, I use Costco’s canned chicken and don’t drain it)
1 onion chopped
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 (15 oz) cans of cut green beans (drained)
4 T chicken base (organic variety at Costco) 
2 C water
1 (7oz) can chopped green chilies 
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper OR 1/2 tsp. chili powder (If you’re feeding small children, you might omit this ingredient.) 
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream

Sauté chicken and onion in oil. Add garlic, beans, chicken base, water, chilies and seasonings. Heat to a soft boil.  Remove from heat. Stir in milk and cream.  Yield: 6 servings
