Today I’m sharing an easy white chicken chili recipe that you can make in a slow cooker! But first, a little on how this recipe came about…
I’m so thankful to have such a great group of mom friends at my son’s school. We hit it off when James started Pre-K3 and he’s in third grade now, so we’ve all really gotten to know each other over the years. About a year ago or so, we put together a Bunco group so that we’d have a standing monthly date on the calendar to get together. You know how it is, unless it’s on the calendar, it’s probably not gonna happen!
If you don’t know, Bunco is an easy to play dice game, but really, it’s a chance for a girls night out sans kids and men with lots of wine! We alternate who hosts and that person serves a main dish and everyone else brings sides and drinks. I’ve been introduced to lots of delicious food at these Bunco nights, and my friend Jamie’s white chicken chili was a stand out!
It was so good that of course I begged her for the recipe and went home and made it the next day. Not surprisingly, it was a hit at my house too and the best part is, you can make it in your slow cooker!
With kids heading back to school and Fall almost here, this delicious, easy white chicken chili recipe will be great to have on hand for busy days!
EASY WHITE CHICKEN CHILI RECIPE
This is a simple slow cooker dish with a different spin on a traditional chili because it’s made with healthy chicken breast and white beans. Definitely garnish your chili with some of these toppings (avocado, sour cream, cheese, green onions, and/or a squeeze of lime) to take it to the next level!
INGREDIENTS & DIRECTIONS
The awesome thing about a slow cooker meal is the obvious. You just dump all the ingredients into the pot in the morning, and you have a delicious, piping hot meal ready to go by dinner time. There’s minimal clean up and you didn’t have to spend a lot of time slaving over a hot stove.
I have done this with both cooked and uncooked chicken. We had a rotisserie chicken on-hand this time around so we used that!
INSTANT POT VS BREVILLE FAST/SLOW PRO COOKER
My hubby wanted what he considered to be the ‘best of the best’ and he preferred the LCD display, so that’s the one we went with. I do actually really like the easy-to read display as well and how easy it is to just turn the dial to customize the Fast/Slow Pro to what you are cooking. It’s also super easy to clean because the inner pot comes out and you can wash it in the sink.
HOW TO PURCHASE A SLOW COOKER FOR LESS
I’ve talked about eBay before but as a friendly reminder, it’s not all auctions like you might remember from the old days. In fact, over 80% of their items are “buy it now” which is what I always shop. I hate to wait!
And they have millions of ‘New With Tags’ items – things that are brand new, never been used or worn, many with free or expedited shipping. I always check the reviews to ensure that seller has a good reputation, but you can shop with confidence because eBay has a money back guarantee if you change your mind.
If you spent the summer wearing out your patio set or coveting your neighbor’s really cool pool toys, now is the time to stock up for next summer!! There’s also cute clothes for those of us expecting warm temperatures well into October and some cool weather outdoor essentials as well!
TOPPING OFF YOUR WHITE CHICKEN CHILI
After 8 – 10 hours of being productive while your chili cooks, garnish with some of these toppings (avocado, sour cream, cheese, green onions, and/or a squeeze of lime) to take it to the next level! Enjoy!
