The Last Hurrah

I made one of my favorite dishes tonight for the last time, until the cold weather season returns again. A last hurrah to cold-weather foods…because we will barbeque and grill our winter blues away soon! I wanted to share the dish with you guys. It’s called Chunky Chicken Chili and it is one of the most delicious chili I’ve ever had! I discovered it on the Food Network on a show called Big Daddy’s House hosted by Aaron McCargo Jr.
Chili powder, Cumin, Coriander, Pink Salt, Cracked Black Pepper
The dish is RICH to say the least, but soooo good! Here’s the ingredient list:
  • 1 stick butter, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, diced
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained
  • 2 (4-ounce) cans mild green chiles
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar, for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves, for garnish
You can get the cooking instructions on the site. I wanted to share a few tips. I replaced the butter with coconut oil for a healthier version. I also replaced Kosher salt with Himalayan Pink Salt. I used approximately 2 1/2 teaspoons of Pink Salt, you should salt to your taste.  You can use any kind of stock in this dish. I’ve used beef and turkey, I like turkey stock the best. If you’re a vegetarian, you can eliminate the chicken and add mushrooms instead, it’s just as good! If you don’t like parsley as a garnish, you can use cilantro! I’ve found cilantro to be much more in keeping with the harmony of the dish.  Enjoy!
