Cyn Shea’s Famous White-House Chicken Chili


Cyn Shea’s Famous White-House Chicken Chili

The first 8 years of our company operated in a small kitchen just off the square of Fayetteville, TN in the basement of a 200-year-old building.  At that time, Congressman Van Hilleary (1995-2002) would return from Washington, DC and order our Chili by the gallons to store it in the freezer, ready and available for late night meals.  We began to call our white chili recipe, the White-House Chicken Chili

Yield: 6-8 servings


¼      cup butter or margarine

1        large onion, chopped

1        garlic clove, finely chopped

2        cups cooked chicken, pulled or chopped

2        tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1        tablespoon dried basil leaves

2        teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

¼      teaspoon ground cloves

2        cans (16 oz each) great northern beans, undrained
