White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili-simple and easy recipe that everyone in the family will enjoy @zealousmom.com #chili

This recipe for white chicken chili is extremely easy and pleases everyone in my family. It’s simple to put together and cooks in the slow cooker all day. Anytime I take this dish to a luncheon or dinner party, it’s a major hit with the guests.

To make things a little more simple, I suggest cooking and shredding the chicken the night before as that is the only step that takes any time at all. Then set your alarm ten minutes early, add the remaining ingredients, turn on the slow cooker, head out for the day, and come home to a delicious meal. Enjoy!

    I love white chicken chili, though I’ve never done the slow cooker version. Kenny was getting tired of it, but maybe he’d try it in the next couple of weeks? (Before I bust out the summer recipes!)

    I love chili and for some reason I have never had it with white chicken! This looks delicious and something I could make really quick for dinner time. I am tired of the same ol’ kidney beans and ground meat!

    We haven’t had chicken chili in a while but now I want a bowl. And this would be gluten free so my entire family could eat it!

    I’ve got the world’s biggest chili fan in the house. He used to go the local chili cookoff every year w/the second oldest, but that child’s grown up and moved away now. :/ This sounds delicious!
