Healthy White Chicken Chili
Want a break from red meat, but still want chili? You should try my white chicken chili! It is a one pot meal where you cook the chicken in the broth. It is also dairy and gluten free for those with allergies.
This is a great meal to bring to a holiday gathering, feed friends and family on a cold winter night, or bring to your next football Sunday. Top with fresh squeezed lime, chopped scallions and cheddar cheese and you have a warm bowl of happiness!
