Chicken Chili-Style Soup

by Kelli H. on December 2, 2011

I’m going to apologize in advance.

I eat A LOT of soups and chilis and basically one pot meals in the fall and winter.

It’s pretty much how I survive.

So, I’m sorry if you get sick of seeing these one pot type of meals but I always appreciate a new one pot meal recipe and I hope you will too!

This recipe is similar to this recipe.
It’s not the same though and it’s worth trying this one too!

Chicken Chili-Style Soup
Adapted from Cooking Pleasures
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 (8 oz) package mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chiles
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes
5 cups chicken broth
3 (15 oz) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
S&P
Toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips, cilantro
1. Slice chicken breasts into 1″ pieces. Season with salt and pepper. In a soup pot or dutch oven over medium high heat, add olive oil and chicken. Saute chicken for about 3 minutes. 
2. Add in onions and mushrooms, saute for about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add in chiles, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and cayenne pepper and cook for about 3-5 minutes to blend the flavors together. 
3. Stir in chicken broth and beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve with crushed tortilla chips and any other toppings you desire!

I need to try this out! I’ve never made a non-traditional chili, but since I love it so much I should!

You definitely need to try a non-traditional chili! They’re so good!
