Go On, Don’t Be Chicken!

Fried, stewed, grilled, baked or broiled are some popular methods for cooking chicken and we just happened to stumble on a good one this week. An article produced by the Wall Street Journal outlined that chicken is the fastest meat for consumption from birth to full maturity and that poultry production is rising faster than any other meat that humans normally consume. See the article here: http://www.wsj.com/articles/how-to-satisfy-the-worlds-surging-appetite-for-meat-1449238059 The push for chicken will continue to grow and with that growth, the harder pressed you will be to find a wholesome chicken for a good price. But you can count on Giovanni’s to have the best of both.

White Chicken Chili

Ingredients:

4 chicken breast halves

4 cups chicken stock

2 small cloves of garlic minced

1 small onion diced

1/4 cup jalapeƱos

2 cans of white kidney beans drained

2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp chili powder

2 tsp kosher salt (we preferred the flavor of a smoked salt)

1 tsp black pepper

In a stockpot or Dutch oven, cook chicken in the chicken broth over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Use a fork and shred the chicken when fully cooked. Add all other ingredients and cook for another 10 minutes. Top with cheese or hot sauce and enjoy! We enjoyed it with siracha hot sauce and cheddar cheese. This recipe is low in fat and heart healthy.

Finished product - very flavorful!
