This chicken stew is so easy and delicious, that I feel compelled to put aside all other projects to share it with you. A warm, flavorful and satisfying Fall meal in 30 minutes, no joke.

I found this recipe at one of my favorite blogs, Add a Pinch. She calls it a chili, but there isn’t enough spice or thickness to it for me to consider it a chili, so I prefer to call it a stew. Tomato…tom-aa-to, it is simply delicious!

Chicken and White Bean Stew
Adapted from a recipe at Add a Pinch

  • 6-8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock (or full sodium and cut back on the salt)
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can white beans, with liquids from beans
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilis, with liquids from chilis
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
Put the chicken and stock in a heavy-bottomed stockpot or dutch oven. Cook over medium-high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Shred chicken with two forks in the pan. I shredded until I had bite-size pieces.
Then add everything else, stir and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
