Food Fact

Chicken is a protein front-runner in the American diet. In fact, the average American ate 92 pounds of it in 2017. Fortunately, Ohio farmers alone raise over 338 million pounds of chicken each year.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Two 15-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • One 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • One 14-1/2-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped cilantro, corn


  1. In a large saucepan, cook chicken and onion over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, breaking up chicken into crumbles.

  2. Pour one can of beans in a small bowl and mash slightly. Stir mashed beans, remaining can of beans, chilies, seasonings and broth into chicken mixture. Bring to a boil.

  3. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until flavors are blended, 12-15 minutes.

  4. Serve with toppings as desired.
