This White Bean and Chicken Chili is one of my favorite meals to make year-round. I usually have everything that I need in my pantry and it comes together in a matter of minutes.
It’s also a great meal to make for a quick and healthy lunch. If you are into doing healthy meal prep, this one of my go-to recipes that I make at the beginning of the week and then enjoy it as a healthy lunch all week long.
If you wanted, you could also make this in a crock pot! See below for the instructions.
Ingredients needed for White Bean and Chicken Chili:
- chicken broth
- cooked, shredded chicken (a rotisserie chicken works great for this)
- canned Great Northern beans (drained and rinsed)
- mild salsa verde
- ground cumin
- fresh cilantro
- avocado (optional garnish)
How to make White Bean and Chicken Chili:
This recipe is basically a “dump and go” recipe – add chicken broth, cooked chicken, beans, salsa verde and cumin into a large stock pot on the stove. Stir everything together.
Cook over medium high heat until it starts to boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Ladle soup into bowls and garnish each bowl with chopped avocado and cilantro.
How to make this chili in your slow cooker:
This is a simple meal to make in your slow cooker as well.
When I make this recipe in the slow cooker, I use frozen chicken breasts.
Place chicken breasts, chicken broth, beans, salsa verde and cumin into a slow cooker. Cover with lid and cook on HIGH heat for 3-4 hours or on LOW heat for 5-6 hours.
Remove chicken breasts from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks, then add chicken back into the slow cooker.
Mix well and ladle into bowls, adding avocado and cilantro as garnish.
