White Chicken Chili

My own recipe..

4 chicken breasts
4 cups chicken broth
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & diced
1/2 white onion, chopped
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 cans (16 oz each) navy beans
1 can (7 oz) chopped green chiles

Boil chicken, jalapeno, onion and seasonings in the chicken broth until chicken is cooked through.  Remove chicken, cut into small, bite-size pieces and return to liquid. 
Add beans and green chiles.  Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer until heated through and desired thickness. 
Serve with or without crackers.

*I used frozen chicken breasts, any could be used.
*More jalapeno and cayenne could be added for more heat, this is a mild flavor, but with a hint of heat at the end.
*I used navy beans, but could use any white bean.

My husband, who can be quite picky loved it!
