Healthy White Chicken Chili
All you have to do to make White Chicken Chili is add the ingredients to the Crockpot, turn it on and walk away. Tackle the rest of your to-do list while the chicken cooks to tender perfection.
After shredding the chicken, I add one extra step to thicken the white chicken chili with no cream. Pureeing the chili for a few seconds with an immersion blender thickens it beautifully. The slightly pureed white beans add creaminess to the dish without the fattiness of heavy cream.
How to Serve White Bean Chicken Chili
This chili is especially delicious topped with sour cream, avocado slices, tortilla chips and shredded cheese. Add a bit of hot sauce on top for more spiciness. A sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro adds a perfect touch of freshness to this hearty dish too.

Tips for Making White Chicken Chili
- Check the chicken toward the end of cooking time. Slow cookers can vary in temperature. The chicken is done cooking when it pulls apart easily. If you use frozen chicken, you may need a bit more cooking time.
- If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can thicken your chili with a traditional blender instead. Just add one cup of the cooked chili and puree. Return to the Crockpot and stir before serving.

Hello! I just want to confirm. Is this 1 and 1/4 lb chicken breast?
Christi Johnstone says
Yes, for some reason the formatting in the recipe card made that look quite confusing – apologies! I’ve tried to redo it to make it more clear, but you are correct, basically one to one and a quarter pound of chicken breasts will work
This was great. We loved that it wasn’t very heavy and leftovers heated up nicely.
