White Bean and Chicken Chili

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Cheesecake Factory.  I have a love/hate relationship with chain restaurant, but the CF has always got my back.  Their Skinnylicious menu also makes me very happy - and it will you too, after you read the nutritional information from their regular menu.  #holycaloriesbatman  I almost order the Skinnylicious White Chicken Chili when I go and when I saw this recipe recreating it, I knew I had to try it and put my own take on it!

*adapted from here

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground chicken
1 can Great Northern Beans
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon white pepper
1 small can green chiles (I get these at Trader Joe's)
1 tablespoon flour (I used gluten free)
2 cups chicken stock
Few dashes green Tobasco
1/4 cream
Diced green onions, for garnish

- Heat oil over medium and add chicken, cumin, salt and pepper and cook until almost done, about 5-7 minutes
- Remove chicken and set aside
- Melt butter in the pan, add onions and cook until translucent
- Add garlic and cook for about a minute
- Add the chiles, then the flour and mix together until combined
- Gradually add in chicken stock, mixing to combine
- Add the Tobasco and continue to stir
- Bring to a simmer over medium heat, add back in chicken, add in beans and simmer for about five minutes
- Stir in cream, remove from heat, serve and top with scallions

This is delicious with rice or quinoa or totally on its own if you want to be low-carb!

Enjoy :)

Have a fabulous day!
