National Poultry Day

It occurred to me that I hadn't done a wacky holiday lately so...Ta Daah.

Today is the National Poultry Day.  This is to honor all the chickens and turkeys that we consume.  I know that around my house, chicken is a staple my household as my hubby finds that beef is harder to digest.  I just love the fact that there are so many different things one can do with a chicken breast.  I wanted to share a great recipe with you :)

White Chicken Chili

  • 2 large jars of Great Northern beans 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 medium onions
  • 4 cups cubed chicken (approx. 4 chicken breasts)
  • 2 4-oz. cans green chilis *2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne red pepper
  • Grated cheddar or monteray jack cheese
  • salsa & sour cream if desired
In one tsp. of oil, saute garlic & onion until sauced. Add beans & broth to mixture. Shred chicken (or in a food processor) and add to mixture. Add chilies & all spices. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for 30-40 minutes. Great to make a day ahead! Serve with cheeses and sour cream for topping.


  1. Anything with cheese and sour cream is delish in my book!
