Date tried:May 24, 2017
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 30 minutes max.

Prior preparation
Both beans and chicken need to be cooked in advance.
Great way to use leftovers of these ingredients. Plan previous weeks menus with this in mind.

The name comes from substitutions made to a standard chili recipe:
-white navy beans replace red kidney beans
-chicken replaces ground beef
-white sauce replaces tomato sauce

I enjoyed this dish very much.

Ancient Persian Salad

Date tried: Nov. 3, 2014
Yield:6-8 servings
Time needed: 1/2 hour

This is very good. I love these dark greens. And so good for you, too as they are rich in vitamins and minerals.  Apparently the ancient Persians considered they helped children grow properly and so served them often. Adding cooked chicken or tuna makes it a whole meal.  For a side salad, use only the vegetables.
