white christmas chili

A great way to end 2010...with one of my favorites of all time!  
And, granted, not a sweet for this time of the year, but it does have "Christmas" in the title!

White Christmas chili....oh-so-delicious!  It's hearty but healthy and very satisfying when it's getting colder out there :)
Hope you all had a great year and have a very blessed New Year!!

White Christmas Chili
Serves 4-6.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts halves
5 cups water
1 onion, diced and divided
2 tablespoons butter
2 celery ribs, diced
3 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed, divided
3 small cans of chopped green chilies (on the Mexican isle)
1 cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon cumin
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper
Shredded cheese
Sour cream

Poach chicken in water and half of the onion in a deep pot on medium high for 15-18 minutes or until chicken is done.  Remove chicken, reserving broth.  Dice chicken. 
Melt butter in skillet; add celery and onion and sauté.  Stir chicken, celery mixture, 2 cans beans and next 6 ingredients into reserved broth in the deep pot.  Bring to boil then reduce to medium low and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.  Process the remaining can of beans in a food processor and stir into chili.  Remove bay leaf and garnish with cheese and sour cream.  Enjoy!!
