White bean chili

I made this recently for a church event... quite good. I tend not to like traditional chili so this was a nice change. I doubled the recipe for a full pot.
  • 1 lb ground chicken or cubed chicken breast
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  • 16 ounces mild salsa verde
  • 2 cans white cannellini beans
  • 14 oz chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
Brown chicken in stew pot in 2 tsp oil. Remove, cook onion and garlic in oil 5-6 minutes, until tender. Mix together remaining spices, add and stir for 1 minute. Add salsa, beans, chicken and broth, heat to boiling. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Serve with cilantro, if desired.
