White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili final

Here is your game day special. With the weather turning cooler and the football season taking off, what better way to celebrate the return of fall than with an amazing chili? Did I mention that it’s all crock pot? So easy!!

Hubby and I crafted this ourselves. Each time it’s a little different but always a favorite. This recipe can be modified so many ways and it can also be an “everything but the kitchen sink” collaboration. Here are the basics. Feel free to add what you like!

 

Ingredients:

2-3 Chicken breasts (we used frozen)

2 Cans Great Northern Beans

1 Can of corn

Bacon, to taste (we used 4-5 strips, let’s be honest, bacon makes everything better!)

1 tablespoon of oil

1 McCormick White Chicken Chili packet

1 Cup Chicken broth

1 can green chilies

Additional ingredients: In the past we have also tossed in: green onion, onion, jalapeño, peppers, and extra corn. We finish it with a little shredded cheese and sour cream.

Manwich Cheesy Chicken Pasta

 

Manwich Cheesy Chicken Pasta

I love cleaning tons of dishes after preparing a meal, said no one ever. One pot meals is where it’s at. So I was thrilled when I saw this next pin. While I didn’t have the EXACT ingredients, it did provide a filling meal.

On this particular day though, I only had frozen chicken on hand. Hubby and I aren’t thrilled with the texture of defrosted chicken so I opted to slow cook it in the crock pot with some chicken broth until dinner. Although technically making my one pot, 2 pots, this is so easy and yummy. So come time for dinner, we had fall apart chicken that was ready to go! This dinner was provided by Yellow Bliss Road.

Manwich Cheesy Chicken Pasta

Ingredients:

2 cups shredded or diced chicken
2 Tbsp minced onion
2 Tbsp minced garlic (I used Garlic powder)
1 can Manwich Bold  + 1 can water (I used the regular)
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 pound of small dry pasta (I used mini Rotini)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

1. Heat a small amount of oil in a large pot. Add onion and garlic and saute for one minute, then add cooked chicken and saute for a couple of minutes. (She used cooked chicken she had on hand, I used the cooked crock pot chicken. However cooking the chicken with the onions and garlic would work just as well.)

2. Add chicken broth, Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce, water and pasta to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for about 20-25 minutes. (Keep an eye on it so all of the liquid doesn’t cook off. Mine was a little dry as I went between cooking and feeding a fussy baby.)

3. Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheddar until well incorporated, reserving a handful to sprinkle on the top. Cover for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt, and stir.

Results

So, mine is a little different from the original, but this was still a tasty meal. Lots of leftovers! While it wasn’t completely my taste, the hubby cleaned his plate and asked for seconds which is music to my ears and a pinning success!
