White Bean Chicken Chili by Ellie Krieger

Portions: 2 cups

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into ½ inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 medium poblano peppers, seeded, white ribs removed, and finely diced
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • Two 15.5-ounce cans no-salt added white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Green pepper hot sauce, such as Tabasco green
  • ¼ cup reduced fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Instructions
1
Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not quite cooked through about 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add another 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the pot and repeat with the remaining chicken.
2
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pot, reduce the heat to medium, then add the onion, celery, poblano and jalapeno peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, oregano, and coriander and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
3
Add the beans, broth and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Return the chicken with its juices to the pot and cook until the chicken is just cooked through, 5 minutes. Stir in the lime juice, then add hot sauce to taste, depending on the heat of the poblanos and jalapeños used, which can vary widely. Season with additional salt if desired. Top each serving with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of cilantro.
