Campfire Recipes – Chicken Chili

It’s cold. you have a fire, and your trusty pot and pan. What do you make? Chili of course, in this case, chicken chili, sometimes known as white chili. Why is it called white chili? Because instead of red beans you use white beans.

Ingredients (for one Serving):

  • ½ chicken breast
  • ½ can great northern beans
  • ½ can chicken broth
  • ½ of a small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: seasonings including oregano, cumin, and chile peppers to taste

To make it, get a bed of hot coals smoldering.

Place your pan on top, after coating it with vegetable oil, then place the chicken breast in it. Cover it and let it cook until no pink is left in the breast (or about 165 degrees).

While the chicken is cooking, combine the broth, beans, onion, and seasonings in a separate pot and stir.

Once the chicken is done, dice it, toss it in the pot along with everything else, and let it simmer over the coals for 20-30 minutes.

In the ingredients list, it says “optional: seasonings including oregano, cumin, and chile peppers to taste”. Chili peppers are not optional in chili. Often times I get recipes submitted to us, I post them unaltered from the submitter unless I have made that specific recipe. In this case, I have not cooked a white chili over a campfire.
