Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Preparing the Chicken

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  5. Remove the chicken from the skillet and allow it to cool slightly before shredding it with two forks.

2. Making the White Chili Sauce

  1. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Stir in the cumin, oregano, chili powder, and paprika, and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add the white beans and diced green chilies, stirring well to combine.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.
  7. Gradually add the shredded Monterey Jack and Pepper Jack cheeses, stirring continuously until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.

3. Assembling the Casserole

  1. In a large casserole dish, spread a thin layer of the white chili sauce on the bottom.
  2. Add a layer of shredded chicken over the sauce.
  3. Sprinkle the corn evenly over the chicken.
  4. Pour the remaining white chili sauce over the top, spreading it out evenly.
  5. Add dollops of sour cream on top of the sauce.

4. Baking and Serving

  1. Cover the casserole dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbly and golden on top.
  3. Garnish with chopped cilantro and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.
  4. Serve hot and enjoy!

Healthier Options and Substitutions

  • Chicken: Substitute with turkey or lean ground chicken for a lighter option.

  • Corn: Replace with diced zucchini for a low-carb alternative.
  • Sour Cream: Use a light sour cream or omit it altogether to save on calories.

Storage and Reheating Tips

  • Storage: Allow the casserole to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
