Anyone have a good recipe? I tried one last night and my kids vetoed it (I don't blame them-wasn't great, kinda blah). I am looking for one that doesn't call for chiles or peppers. They do not have hot/spicy taste buds-neither do I.

OK-I'm giving out my secret recipe so you should feel really special
It's won 3 first place prizes and one second place prize in cook-offs
I just combined my favorite things from different recipes and made my own.

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 onion chopped
1 48oz jar great northern beans (undrained)
16oz salsa (i use fresh but use whatever your family likes)
2 4oz cans mild green chilies chopped (optional)
2t ground cumin
1 can 14oz creamed corn
3c chicken broth
2c Monterey jack cheese (or pepper jack)

Saute chicken with onion until just cooked. (I usually add a little garlic for flavor too) Combine with all of the rest of the ingredients and either cook on stove or I usually throw it all in a crock-pot and leave it on low all day.
Often times I make up a huge batch of chicken breasts in the crock-pot seasoned with a little garlic/onion and shred it and keep it in the freezer. I often use this instead of doing the sauteing when I make it. It's a lot easier and takes less time.
If you like a little creamier broth add a brick of cream cheese (cut up) and melt it in. If you like it thinner just add a little more broth.
I usually serve this with extra cheese, cilantro ( I LOVE cilantro!) sour cream and chips.
And now I'm hungry for white chicken!!!

Thank you! I'll have to give it a try in a few weeks, so they can forget about this last one first.

Holy cow that sounds awesome! Today's a half day for me and then I'm off to the store to pick up the few things I don't have. Thanks!

Have you frozen this with good results? I have made it once and my family LOVED it. I want to make it again and portion some out for DH's lunches.

I'm not sure if I've frozen it or not...we usually just eat the whole thing up before it gets bad

Add to shopping list
INGREDIENTS
• 1 lb large white beans, soaked overnight in water, drained
• 6 cups chicken broth

The ate it fast last time, too! DH said to add it into our rotation. I am going to try freezing and if I think of it, I will let you know how it held up.
