On Tuesday we shopped at Costco and bought one of their rotisserie chickens. Costco sells a much larger chicken than our grocery stores for a much lower price. For $4.99 the Costco chicken gives us two substantial meals. On Tuesday we each had a leg and a thigh. Tonight the copious breast meat supplied the chicken in our chili and we have chili left over for lunch. Each portion will end up costing about $.80 per person. Good deal!
For the chicken chili we sautéed onions, poblano and jalapeño peppers, and garlic and then added a bunch of chili spices. John mashed up about half of a can of cannellini beans as well as adding a can and a half of whole cannellini beans to the pot. We used chicken stock as the cooking liquid. After about 45 minutes on low, he added the cut up chicken and cilantro. Simmer until the chicken is warmed up and it is ready for eating.
We garnished each bowl with chopped cilantro and a dollop of sour cream. The chili was so good that John had two helpings!
