White Bean Chicken Chili

I’ve had this White Bean Chicken Chili recipe for years and tweaked it several times along the way. I think it’s finally the way we like it. I do mess with the amount of Chicken Stock. If you like it more soupy or adding lots of crackers or cornbread, use 14 oz of stock (my original recipe called for that).


White Bean Chicken Chili


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (3 breasts seems about perfect)
1 can great northern beans
1 can Bush’s White Chili Beans
10 oz chicken broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 small onion – diced
1 small can diced green chilies
1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon salt
Pinch red pepper flakes


Add the chicken to the bottom. (I like to spray the bottom and sides first)  Add the spices, garlic and onion. Next add the beans and all the remaining ingredients to the crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours. With two forks, shred the chicken into the mixture and that’s it. Super easy! Optional: Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese and cornbread.

    This looks delicious! I have the ingredients on the counter right now to start. When you do it in the crockpot do you still add the flour in the butter? Thank you!
