Rotisserie Redux: White Chicken Chili

Welcome to Rotisserie Redux, where we tackle that $5 chicken that you bought, again. You know, those ones all scooted up together under their heat lamps at the big box store and they’re not the greatest food in the world but they’re $5 and they’re already cooked and heyyyy who wants dinner? We can do better–let’s do it!

So is anyone else just really sick of cooking?

February was basically just illness after illness and like, rainrainrainrain and then some more rain.

And now, the sun! It’s out and shining bright! And then you go outside and it’s… not actually warm. Like when you wait all week for your avocado to be ready and then you cut it open and it’s mush and what the hell why can’t even the simple things in life go well. (Never mind um, everything else in this world right now.)

But for real I’m so over cold weather food. Long-cooked braises, squash-potato-cabbage, and oh hey look is that a sweet potato? Oh, just kidding it’s just more squash.  Coaxing the flavor out of scraps and bones and remnants of pasta boxes and casseroles thrown together with all the bits and ends floating around the fridge. And while it is good and comforting and sometimes even necessary to create something out of seemingly nothing, I just want to eat a peach or slice up a tomato or throw some meat on the grill while I hang out with a glass of something chilled in hand and call it a day. I don’t want to have to *do* anything to my food. 

Guys I’m just tired.

So I bought another rotisserie chicken. 

But also I like to make life difficult for myself so instead of just eating the chicken here I am, turning it into this White Chicken Chili because it’s 55 degrees and that’s cold here and ok, I *maybe* ate the drumsticks, but everyone else still needs to eat dinner. And so, chicken soup, ramped up.

White Chicken Chili was not something I was ever familiar with growing up. Chili came in two variations. The ground beef-and-bean classic was my dad’s post-divorce dinner of choice for us kids–cheap, easy, and kind of hard to screw up too badly. Or, the Arizona kid that I am, it was chunks of tender braised beef in a deep chili gravy wrapped up in a tortilla served at every restaurant on every corner. 

Here’s the fun thing about kids though, neither of mine eat either of those variations. (Kids are so fun you guys.) And so we turn to this White Chicken Chili. Quick enough to throw together during the week, or stir it together on a weekend for dinner on both Sunday and Tuesday night–it makes a lot. (Or freeze half of it for down the road.) It’s mild enough for me to pass it off to the kids as, “uh, it’s just chicken soup.” Because let’s be real, I don’t really see White Chicken Chili as a true chili, but when you have hearty but not heavy soup that’s easy to throw together plus a smidgen of spice and all the toppings? Who cares what we are calling it. Just pass the hot sauce, please.

Summer, I’m ready for you, but I’ll make do with a pot of this warmth on these early spring nights. The tiniest kick of heat as a reminder of warmer days to come is ok with me for now.

Rotisserie White Chicken Chilii
This is mild for a chili, the spices providing warmth more than any significant heat, which is exactly how my kids like it. If you like things with more of a kick, feel free to increase the spices and/or add in a chopped jalapeño.
  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 large onion
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  4. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  5. 1 rotisserie chicken
  6. 3 - 4 cloves garlic, minced
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. 1/2 teaspoon ground chili powder
  9. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  10. 2 (15 ounce) cans white beans
  11. 1 (4 ounce) can fire-roasted green chiles
  12. 8 cups chicken stock
  13. 2 cups fresh or frozen corn
  14. 1/2 cup fine/medium grind cornmeal
  15. 1 cup milk
  16. Soup toppings: grated cheese, hot sauce, chopped cilantro and green onions, sour cream, avocado, salsa, tortilla chips, etc.
  1. Heat the oil in a 5-qt pot over medium heat. Dice the onion, and add to the pot with the salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts the soften, 8-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, remove the skin from the chicken and discard. Dice or shred the two chicken breasts and thighs (it should be about four cups) and set aside. Mince the garlic. Add the garlic and spices to the pot and cook until fragrant, another 1-2 minutes. Drain and rinse the canned beans.
  3. Add the beans, green chiles, chicken, corn, and chicken stock to the pot. Increase the heat to medium-high, until the soup reaches a simmer. Slowly stir in the cornmeal, adding a little at a time and stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pot so the cornmeal doesn't scorch. Cook for about 30 minutes, or the cornmeal loses its grittiness. Stir in the milk and taste for seasoning. Serve with with the toppings of your choice.

    De ringte meg i dag på vegne av en kunde hvor jeg har SEO.
    Presenterte seg først som Google og skulle ha en gjennomgang.

    Så tok de for seg en av mine kunders Buiness

    Selgeren sa et den snart utløp og måtte fornyes.

    Bare tull

    Skjønte jo at dette var bare tull og spurte ham noen spørsmål som;

    Er han kunde av dere? (Ja sa karen fra mint media)
    Har han betalt? (Ja! Han har betalt)
    Jeg ber ham google et nytt firmanavn – Har han betalt også?
    (Ja, han står på vår kundeliste)
    Jeg gjentar; Men har han betalt? (vent…
    la meg seg… han er kunde men står foreløpig som gratis hos oss)
    Så alle kunder i Norge som ikke har betalt er kunder av dere?

    (ja, på en måte, de er det ja..)

  19. Thanks , I have just been looking for info about this subject for a long time

    But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you certain about the supply?

  20. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve 4
    emails with the same comment. Is there a way you
    can remove me from that service? Cheers!

  21. Ever had anyone give you lousy news? How about fantastic information? What is the
    difference or is there a distinction?

    Superior news – things or information and facts
    that tends to make us satisfied, material, reassured, protected and validated.

    Poor news – the opposite.

    So, it would appear that there is a change concerning
    great and bad information – examine on.

    Have you at any time gotten lousy news but in the finish points turned out perfectly or greater than you expected?
    Have you at any time obtained great news and about time what you thought was good news finished up currently being
    not so great?

    From particular encounter I can inform you that I have skilled all four –

    Excellent news that was great.

    Bad information that was lousy.

    Superior news that I believed was fantastic but finished up being terrible.

    Terrible information that I assumed was poor and ended up currently
    being great.

    Bewildered nevertheless? Perfectly I know that in excess of time I was typically bewildered about the
    distinction concerning these two clear opposite messages.

    But then I acquired that sometimes poor news for 1 man or
    woman can be perceived as superior news for
    an individual else and that very good news to one particular person more than time can be perceived as lousy.

    Confused? Enable me reveal.

    In the end it’s just news and what can make it negative
    or fantastic or even neutral is not the news itself but how we perceive it, decide it, consider
    it or react mainly because of it.

    How can someone understand lousy news as great you may well talk to?
    Or the reverse, how could somebody perceive superior information as poor?

    In short – every single of us has a one of a kind record, activities, beliefs and values
    and as a final result none of us at any time see the very same matter or circumstance in the exact

    A person who is a worrier, adverse, pessimistic or impatient could see a delay as lousy when another man or woman who
    understands the principle of there are factors we can control and there are issues we can’t management so why get all upset about anything you are unable to
    manage or if you can control it get fast paced.

    In the conclusion almost everything that takes place – just happens and
    what we do is interpret it all centered on our anticipations, plans, requirements or mindsets and all of these are exclusive
    for each of us.

    Permit me give you a couple of private examples. And if you
    will take into consideration the rationalization even though you may perhaps not have
    had precisely the identical situation, if you will think about it I am going to be
    you can relate.

    Prior to staring my talking and schooling job I was a nationwide product sales supervisor for an international organization.
    Long tale but the small facet is I experienced an difficulty with my manager, the president and as a outcome he fired me.

    Undesirable information, ideal? Properly that was all
    I wanted to come to a decision it was time to begin a occupation that has lasted
    around forty a long time and has allowed me to see the
    earth (25 international locations to day) and perform
    with some huge clients and audiences. So in the conclude
    this bad information was really excellent information.

    Here is one more rapid a person.

    Decades ago I proposed to my spouse and she stated yes.
    Fantastic news right? (No judgments listed
    here you should). Well in excess of time after carrying out my most effective for additional than fifteen decades I resolved that it was time to
    conclusion it and why? Nicely, with no the gruesome information,
    the romance was step by step eroding my self-esteem,
    assurance and optimistic mindset and I made the decision that I did not like who I was turning
    into in that marriage. We parted, amicably – but we parted.
    Excellent news as I was equipped – in excess of
    time – to regain all I experienced misplaced – emotionally and spiritually.

    We all have our tales and we all can make lists of
    fantastic news and poor information we have received but in the finish it truly is all just information.

    All through some of my company programs I share
    this basic strategy – prevent inquiring your personnel for fantastic information or negative information – just request them for the information and then you choose which it
    is. Due to the fact their definition could be absolutely various than yours.

    And vice versa – as an executive or supervisor do not broadcast – I have some superior or negative
    information – just inform your staff you have got some
    information and permit just about every of
    them interpret it as they see suit primarily
    based on their own viewpoints, attitudes, mindsets, practical experience, anticipations and
    how it might effects them individually.
