White Chicken is a delicious gravy chicken which is both spicy and creamy. Shredded chicken is cooked with white beans and chicken stock, lending it unique aromatic flavors. A piping hot bowl of the white chicken is perfect for that hot dinner on a cold winter night. Best served with some late-night movies on weekends with family and friends. Toss in your white chicken with the toppings of cheese, cilantro or tortilla chips. White chicken is both nutritious and sumptuous at the same time.
White chicken is rich in vitamin A, B6 and C. It contains minerals like iron and calcium in good quantities. Great Northern beans are a fat-less source of protein and fiber. They are loaded with potassium, manganese, iron, and phosphorus. Phosphorous and potassium are needed by the body for strong bones and muscles. They also improve dental health. Manganese helps in controlling blood sugar and reduces inflammation.
How to make White Chicken
Note: white beans can be used as a substitute for Northern beans.
Beans are technically a fruit. Gregor Mendel, the famous geneticist, who gave us the laws of inheritance, tested his theories on bean and pea plants.
Beans have been grown as a crop for almost 6000 years. In ancient Greece, lower level officials were selected using beans. One white bean was mixed in a bean machine containing black beans. The one who picked the white bean out was appointed as an official.
