White Chicken Chili

When you want something healthy, this chicken chili immediately catches your attention. White beans make it more satisfying than chicken soup, pasta, green peppers and jalapeno added with the right amount of spices, and add sour cream to a kind of whipped cream, which is difficult to remove in two. Given that everything is collected in less than an hour, this is a weekday dinner tournament.

  1. Lots of yummy flavor, but very liquidy. How do you thicken it? I followed the recipe pretty precisely.

  2. Christina k

    To thicken it next time mix a little 1 tbs flour with 2 tbs water in a small bowl and slowly Whisk in or rapidly stir into the pot after you’ve added the chicken. It will slowly thicken within a minute or two but you have to keep stirring it. You can add more of the mixture until you reach the preferred thickness. Happy cooking ❤️
