I make a lot of chili during the Winter. It’s so hearty, warming and comforting in the cold weather. Red, tomato based chili recipes are wonderful but my favorite version in the world is this Italian inspired white chicken chili. My recipe is a riff on a similar dish my Nana Lulu would make when I was growing up. I put it together quickly earlier this week and purposely made a huge amount. That way we’d have dinner for days!
I let the white chicken chili simmer for two hours. That let it really develop big flavor and thicken. Once it was done, I just had to serve it! I scooped it into pretty bowls and dug right in with no shame. I didn’t even need to have shame because this was a pretty lean and healthy dish! Oh my goodness, all of my favorite Italian flavors were there in full force. Pssst…the next day it was even better. I also loved that this white chicken chili was a one pot wonder. Any recipe that has me doing fewer dishes makes me so happy. I hope you all enjoy this Italian comfort food classic! xoxo
