Chicken Chili

Standard

 

I realize that Halloween was on Monday and that we have all moved on to Thanksgiving and Christmas baking, but please indulge me. I have this one last post from the Halloween Birthday Party!! This was a big hit and can be served anytime.  No scary holiday needed…. I named it Ghost Chili for the party.  This has a great southwest flavor to it. I used styrofoam cups that I painted themed words on with puffy paint.  The styrofoam not only helped to keep the chili warm but it was a super easy clean up for after the party!

1 onion chopped

2 garlic cloves chopped

4 boneless skinless chicken breast

3 cups water

14 oz chicken stock

salt and pepper

2 tsp cumin, chili powder

1 tsp marjoram

4 cans drained and rinsed white beans

1 16 oz package of frozen corn

2 cans green chiles

juice of one lime

 

Salt and pepper the chicken breast and cook in a saute pan approx 5 min on each side.  Remove from pan and let cool.  In a dutch oven heat 1 tbs olive oil and saute the onion and garlic. Add all the remaining ingredients except the lime juice.  Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.  Shred the chicken breast with 2 forks and add to the pot.  Simmer for 1 -2 hrs.  Just before serving add the lime juice to brighten the flavors.
