This white chicken chili is heart warming and so simple to make!
Confession: If I could I would only use my Crock Pot to cook most nights of the week. Is that bad? It’s just so darn easy to throw everything in there, set the timer and go about your day. When it’s done your meal is ready for you! Being as busy as we are we do use it often, and this white chicken chili is one of our favorite recipes to make.
The ingredients are simple, there’s very little prep work that goes into it, and it tastes oh so good! Plus it has a ton of protein from the chicken and beans.
* 3 chicken breasts
* 1/2 onion, diced
* 1 8 oz package light cream cheese
* 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
* 1 can corn, not drained
* 1 can diced chilies
* 1 tbsp chili powder
* 1 tsp cumin
* 1 tsp onion powder
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp cayanne pepper
* 2 garlic cloved, minced
* 1 tbsp EVOO
* Add all the ingredients (except the cream cheese) to a Crock Pot and stir.
* Add cream cheese but don’t stir in.
* If you use frozen chicken: cook on high for ~6 hours.
* If you use fresh chicken: cook on high for ~4 hours.
* Shred chicken before serving and stir.
I make chicken chili all the time but I never thought to have a creamy base (mine is tomato-based). This is awesome! Thanks!
Let me know if you try it and what you think Jennifer. We love it!
I love it! We really don’t eat beef anymore so this looks exactly like chilli that I would eat if I still at beef with chicken. I pinned this one for sure!
We don’t eat beef too much either Brittnei. We are definitely a chicken family. Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Thanks for pinning!
This sounds amazing! I could go for this right now in fact ;o) Thank you so much for linking up to The PINcentive Blog Hop! Happy Friday and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks so much! It is really good.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Just curious about the cream cheese, you put it in the whole time?? I’ve always been told to put it in the last hour. but this recipe sounds delish!
Hi there! Yes, I put it in the whole time. It gives it time to melt and blend in with the other ingredients. Turns out great! Enjoy!!
Is this spicy? I have a 4 year old and an almost 1 year old that I’d like to make this for…
Hi Amber, it’s a little spicy, but if you reduce the chili powder and cayenne pepper it will calm it down a lot. My 2 year old eats it and loves it.
Do you put three whole raw chicken breasts in the crock pot?? Or are they cooked?
I put them in raw. It makes the chicken really tender sitting in the crock pot all day! 🙂
I’m making this today! 😉
So glad you all liked the recipe!
Made this last night too, YUM!
Tiffany, I seriously make this all the time lol. It’s one of our favorite recipes. Gonna make it this week 😀
We just made this tonight and it was awesome! Thanks!
