White Chicken Chili Recipe

Try this easy, healthy white chicken chili recipe!

This white chicken chili recipe is a great one to add to your dinner rotation, especially during the soup season around here – fall and winter! I’ve tried a few different recipes, but I really like this one for a few reasons. For one, it is a pretty healthy recipe! And it still has a great chili flavor!

Some of the other recipes I’ve tried were a bit bland and needed garnishes like cheese and/or sour cream and more to make them taste good. I don’t mind eating this one plain though! Additional garnishes just make it even better, but aren’t necessary, in my opinion.

Another thing I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make. Simple recipe, simple ingredients! Just throw it all in the slow cooker (or Instant Pot) and let it cook!

In the Instant Pot, you’d just cook it long enough to make sure that chicken cooks through. 30-40 minutes on the soup setting usually works well.

Hope you give this recipe a try and like it too!

Note: If you don’t want a little bit of crunch from the onion, you can soften it first. Simply add the olive oil to a skillet and heat it up. Then saute the onion for a few minutes until it is softened. Scrape the skillet contents into the slow cooker pot, then add the other ingredients and carry on with the recipe as written.

This recipe is slightly adapted from my neighbor and friend, Jessica.

Notes

If you don’t want a little bit of crunch from the onion, you can soften it first. Simply add the olive oil to a skillet and heat it up. Then saute the onion for a few minutes until it is softened. Scrape the skillet contents into the slow cooker pot, then add the other ingredients and carry on with the recipe as written.

Add more or less chicken broth to bring the chili to your desired consistency.
