I worked in a cardiac intensive care unit and one of the nurse clinicians, Barbara Loveline, was a gourmet cook and she gave this recipe to me. I think the seasonings are what make it so good.

Gee, I worked in a hospital also and our cafeteria served white chicken chili. From the ingredients it looks to be similar and I must say it was quite warming and tasty.

Oh this sounds really good. I´m sure this one sacks all cold and flue out of you if you eat it... first the health of real chicken broth and then the spicy chilis and warming spices... Will definetly try this one out. Thank you
