Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

I had no idea it was supposed to snow today.  I headed out to work this morning in my toeless HIGH heels.  I opened my front door, saw all the snow and rather than walking back inside and down the hall to change my shoes, I figured  . . . it'll probably only snow for a minute.

Nope, it's been snowing all day long.  Luckily, it is soft snow and not icy slippery snow.

brrrrrr :)

Now, all I want is a bowl of this unbelievably delicious chili.  

I first had this at a Halloween luncheon back in October and LOVED it.  This is one white chicken chili that does not lack flavor.  It's a new favorite.

Make it and warm yourself right up.

  1. Yum! I'll be trying this one for sure!

  2. Your chili looks wonderful! I started making chicken chili a couple of months ago, and love that it's so much lighter than beef chili. Yours looks so good!!!

  3. Looks delicious! I'm going to make it for sure. Just pinned it. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. This looks so delicious! Pinning for sure!

    Thanks so much for the amazing inspiration!

  5. My son was asking for a white chili--this looks like just the thing. Can't wait to try it.

    1. This one has a lot of flavor! It's delicious leftover too.

  6. It's been cold and dreary here all day…I’d love a bowl of this soup right now! Looks delicious! :)

  7. Hi Jenn! This sounds delicious! I love white chicken chili. I have a question about the chicken. Since they vary so much in size, do you have an estimate on the ounces/pounds? We buy the big ones at Sam's Club and they are pretty big. Thanks and I am pinning this one onto my Soup/Stew/Chili board.

    1. I am terrible at knowing how many pounds or ounces my chicken is, but I do buy the chicken at Costco which are also pretty big. I bet your Sam's Club chicken breasts are the same size. If you feel like that is too much chicken, you could always cut back to three chicken breasts. Let me know if you try it. Thanks for the pin.

  8. I will be making this tomorrow, but question the 1 cup of chicken broth, is that enough? It doesn't seem like much for 8 servings. Please let me know if I am missing something here.

    1. Yes, only one cup. You will get a some liquid from the cans of beans too. If it doesn't seem like enough for your liking, you could always add one whole can, which is around 1 3/4 cup.
