I got this wonderful chili recipe from my sister-in-law, who made a big batch and served a crowd one night. It was a hit. Plus, it's easy and quick, which is helpful since I'm a college student. In all my years of 4-H cooking, I've never had another dish get so many compliments. —Laura Brewer, Lafayette, Indiana

"Delicious !! I loved it because it skips the tomatoes which I'm tired of lately every quick dish is buried in tomato sauce.

Had to improvise, only had 1 can of chilies, added a tsp of chipotle to make up for it.
1 half breast wasn't a pound 2 was a little over. The extra bit of meat was a bonus.
Don't always have heavy cream on hand, had to leave it out but used a bit of whole milk.
Served it with crispy garlic Texas Toast.
This is worth expanding for a crowd. It's a nice change from red chili that seems to be the rage."

"This was just OK. It wasn't bad but I thought it was missing something (corn? cilantro? not sure what). I gave it 4 stars because of the ease of the recipe. Not sure how this recipe wins cook-off's though..."

"My husband is a chili lover. He was however, disappointed when I said we were having "white chicken chili." I left out the whipping cream and the recipe was fine as is. When he ate it he was amazed and absolutely loved it. This recipe is a keeper!"

"This is a great recipe as written; family loved it. I want to make this without the beans as my husband is on a special diet that allows basically no fiber. I am thinking of using pork in place of chicken and white potatoes in place of beans. Wondering if anyone has changed it around like this? As long as the flavor is there I would think this would work. Any suggestions are appreciated!"
