Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe

As a busy mom I have grown to love my crock pot. It definitely is a staple in any parent’s kitchen. A slow cooker is a mom’s best friend. I also like to use as few ingredients as possible… it’s quicker, cheaper, easier, and you don’t cover/mask/drown all the flavors by having too many ingredients.

One of our favorite things to eat is chili. Since my husband and I are eating healthier, I’ve been trying lighter chili recipes. Here is one of our favorites:

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili


  • 2 cans of northern white beans
  • 3 C chicken broth
  • 1 C salsa verde
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 ½ C shredded Colby and monetary jack cheese blend (or any favorite fat-free shredded cheese)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Sour cream (optional)


  • Add chicken to crock pot.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT beans and cheese.
  • Cook on high for 3 hrs.
  • Cut up chicken (or shred) and add in the drained beans.
  • Cook for another 30 min.
  • After 30 min add in the shredded cheese and stir constantly until cheese is melted.
  • Ladle into a bowl and add a little bit of sour cream for an extra creamy texture (optional)

This is a hearty chili perfect anytime. It’s delicious, high in protein, and you can use a fat-free shredded cheese and/or cut down on the amount to make it even fewer calories. It’s one of our favorite chili recipes!
