    In a previous recipe, I mentioned that white chicken chili isn’t really chili… and I stand by that. It’s not.


    It’s an amazing hearty soup entirely all it’s own! But I’ll still call it chili because everyone else does. Semantics, whatever. Anyway – I was in the mood for something like this last night. Something creamy, filling but still light… this white chicken chili fit the bill. SO GOOD.

    There was a sale on chicken breast last week, so I stocked up and I’ve been experimenting with new chicken recipes. This one is a keeper!

    This is also perfect to prep and place in the freezer. To do that, just place the following in a freezer bag:

    • chicken
    • all the spices
    • corn
    • diced tomatoes with green chilis
    • garlic
    • beans (just make sure to rinse them first)

    When you’re ready to cook, make sure it’s at least partially thawed and then place it in the slow cooker, add the water and then follow the rest of the instructions below.

    • 2-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • 2 15 oz cans white northern beans rinsed
    • 1/2 16 oz package of frozen corn
    • 5 oz. diced tomatoes with green chilis
    • 2 tsp chili powder
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1/2 tsp onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/4 tsp black pepper
    • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
    • 2 cups water
    • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
    • 3 Tbsp butter
    • 3 Tbsp flour
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup sour cream


    • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker, and top with all ingredients EXCEPT butter, flour, milk and sour cream.
    • Cook on high for 4 hours.
    • Shred chicken (this might be easiest by taking the chicken out of the slow cooker, and then placing it back in).
    • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add the flour and whisk for a minute or two until it's bubbly and smooth.
    • Add the milk and continue to whisk until it's bubbly and thick, then add it to the slow cooker.
    • Add the sour cream to the slow cooker and mix it in well.
    • Top with crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, avocado and cilantro.
