    White chicken chili is a delicious, creamy chili made with white beans, chicken, and a variety of spices and seasonings. It’s a flavorful dish that’s perfect for chilly weather. And making it in the slow cooker couldn’t be easier! Here’s how to make white chicken chili in a slow cooker.


    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 1 medium onion, diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies
    • 2 (15-ounce) cans great northern beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

    – Salt and pepper to taste

    – Shredded Monterey jack cheese, sour cream, cilantro for serving (optional)


    1. Add the chicken, onion, garlic, green chilies, beans, broth, water, and all spices to a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Stir to combine.
    2. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours, until chicken is cooked through and tender.
    3. Once done, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    4. To serve, ladle chili into bowls and top with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and chopped cilantro if desired.


    – For extra flavor, use chicken thighs instead of breasts. The thighs will hold up well and become fall-off-the-bone tender.

    – Try using different types of beans like cannellini or navy beans. The chili will still have a nice white color.

    – Add extra vegetables like corn, zucchini or bell peppers. Just add them in step 1.

    – Garnish with avocado, tortilla strips, or green onions for extra flavor and texture.

    – Let any leftovers refrigerate for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. The flavors will continue to develop.

    This simple recipe makes for a deliciously hearty and comforting white chicken chili that’s just perfect for chilly weather. The slow cooker does all the work so you can come home to a hot bowl of chili with minimal hands-on effort. Enjoy!
