    marypage's Note:

    I originally set out the make a white chicken chili and somehow was not satisfied. By adding chili powder and several other ingredients my white chicken chili was no longer white. The chicken in the recipe can be done several ways. Have leftover chicken use it here. You can brown your chicken or poach it. Another option is to under baked bone in, skin on chicken breasts, cool and shred and add to recipe. You have lots of options here.

    1. 1
      Brown cut up bacon pieces until crisp. Remove from pan, set aside and reserve bacon drippings.
    2. 2
      In another pan put 2 cups of chicken broth, bay leaf and chicken breasts and poach for 10-15 minutes. Undercook, since you will be simmering chicken again in a later step. Let chicken cool in broth. Reserve poaching liquid. When cooled either shred or cube chicken.
    3. 3
      Saute onion and garlic in bacon drippings until translucent. Add spices (cumin, chili powder, thyme, cayenne, salt and pepper). Cook a minute more.
    4. 4
      Now add reserved broth plus 2 more cups of broth, drained beans, undrained beans and undrained green chilis. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes. Add dried instant milk powder and mix; simmer a few minutes more.
    5. 5
      If you want a thicker chili add cornstarch mixed with water and cook til thickened. Serve. Top with crisped bacon pieces.
    6. 6
      NOTE: You do not have to poach chicken. You could use leftover chicken. Another possibility is to brown cubed chicken breast in bacon drippings and continue leaving out the poaching part and go to sauteeing onion and garlic and add 4 cups of broth as noted above.
    7. 7
      Other garnishes/condiments/sides: tortillas, tortilla chips, sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped cilantro, diced red/green peppers.
