White "Chili"

I found this recipe in one of my parenting magazines, but tweaked it, because that's what I do. I'll post my recipe and I'll note what I changed it from. I don't know why they call it chili, to me it's more of a chicken/bean Italian dish.

2-3 chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces (1 lb ground chicken)
1 can cannelini beans
1 can northern beans
1/2 box chopped spinach (2 cups spinach leaves)
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup diced onion
2-3 cups water and chicken bouillon powder (2-3 cups chicken broth)
I also added a bit of bay leaf, dash salt & pepper

  • Chop chicken and cook over medium heat with some olive oil in a deep skillet.
  • Crush garlic and add to chicken along with onion
  • Let chicken cook until pink is gone
  • Add beans and spinach
  • Add broth or water + bouillon (because I used frozen chopped spinach there was water in there so I lessened the water it called for)
  • Let cook until water/broth becomes mostly absorbed. Or if you want it more soup-like, eat it before water absorbs. I liked it thicker.

It was delish, and quick and easy to throw together, with all these things I always keep in my house anyway. Kevin liked it, and he's hard to please. Kian loved it too! I love one pot meals!
