Just a few weeks ago, we were invited to dinner by some friends from church. We always love gatherings like this for it not only presents a great chance to visit friends but it's a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other better and with great food at that. Needless to say part of our menu was this amazing Chicken Chili dish! Naturally, I asked my friend to give me her recipe and she willingly obliged. I was so happy to try it. It was wonderful as I expected! What's even greater you can also do this in the slow cooker!
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (light)
2 medium Onions, chopped
1 large Green Bell pepper, chopped
3 Celery stalks, chopped
3 Lbs cooked Chicken or 1 Rotisserie chicken, cut into cubes or chunks
2-3 teaspoon Ground Cumin, or to taste
3 canned Great Northern Beans (rinsed and drained)
1 16 oz Salsa (choose your heat level - I use Medium)
2 cups Chicken broth or stock
Fresh chopped Cilantro, for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste
Heat a large deep pan and add the oil and butter in it. Once the butter has melted, sauté the onions, celery and bell peppers until the onions become translucent about 5-6 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until everything is heated through, the vegetables are tender and chili has reached your desired thickness. Season to taste.
For a slow cooker version:
Stir-fry as usual and then place in a crockpot and add the rest of the ingredients and then cook on high for 4 hours.
Garnish with some chopped cilantro. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream and chips! Oh yum!
