Easy Healthy Recipes - White Chili


Chili warms the body and the soul. Use this clean recipe as an alternative to the standard "brick in the belly" chili options that are loaded with red meats, mounds of beans, excessive sodium, chunks of fat, and a lack of healthy vegetables. 


2-chicken breasts cubed

1-scoop coconut oil

1-glug EVOO

1-leek sliced on bias

1-head bok choi sliced on bias

1-shallot diced

1-handful diced bell pepper

1-can white beans drained and rinsed

1-small container chicken bone broth



Hearty pinch of salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, and a dash of cayenne


Heat pot over medium heat. Add coconut oil. Sauté leek, bok choi, shallot, pepper, and spices until shallot is translucent (5 minutes).

Turn heat to high, add EVOO and chicken. Sauté until chicken is white on outside (5 minutes).

Add juice from lemon and lime to pot. Stir to deglaze the pot. Add bone broth and beans. Bring to a boil. Drop heat to low and simmer (5 minutes). Enjoy!
