Slow Cooker White Chili With Chicken

Slow cooker recipes are perfect for busy days. This White Chili with Chicken recipe was made in my vintage Crock Pot and served with homemade cornbread.

White Chili With Chicken RecipeThings have once again gotten really busy! This time it isn’t the holidays but rather it is work. Many of you who are bloggers know that for the past couple of years, I’ve been doing work as a campaign leader because you’ve worked with me on campaigns. Well, I just took on a campaign involves a large number of bloggers over a very short period of time. Call me crazy (and you might be right) but taking it on has more to do with the fact that we bought a car recently and the thought of making a car payment than anything. When things get busy, family life still goes on. Everyone needs clean clothes, dishes need to be washed and everyone needs to eat. So, I pulled out my Crock Pot and made White Chili with Chicken! It cooked all day yesterday while I worked.

Slow Cooker White Chili RecipeMeet my vintage Crock Pot. I believe we received this as a wedding gift 19 years ago and it still works great. I was going to use my red Crock Pot that you’ve seen in many of my slow cooker blog posts, but when I pulled it out I noticed that there was a crack along the bottom of the stoneware piece. So, out came the trusty green Crock Pot!

To make the White Chicken Chili, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan. Add minced garlic, dried chopped onion, diced green chilies, cumin, chili powder, oregano, pepper and salt. Cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in flour and cook for a couple of minutes while stirring. The mixture will clump together. Stir in chicken broth until the flour mixture has dissolved and then stir in the milk.

Put thawed, boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker, top with a can of drained super sweet white corn, and 2 cans of drained and rinsed great northern beans. Pour the broth over all of it and cook on high for 6-8 hours. After about 5 hours, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and return to the Crock Pot.

Cornbread RecipeTo go along with the white chili, I made some of this Cinnamon Sugar Cornbread.

White Chicken Chili RecipeI topped the white chili with shredded Monterey Jack cheese and cilantro. I put the leftovers into small containers in the freezer so that I can warm it up for lunch!

  1. Sounds delicious but you mention adding flour in but I don’t see the measurement amount, is there one? Thanks.

  2. Gosh this chili is calling my name. It is perfect on a cold day.

    • Thanks Jocelyn! When I brought the kids to school this morning, it was 29 degrees and then I found out that was the high temperature of the day! Darn!

    Hi Tonia,
    Winter has always been the perfect time for chili. The great northern beans you mentioned are those garbonso Beans?
    Reason I ask is because that is what they look like.
    Your chili looks awesome just like every thing else that you post to share with us.
    Thank You,

  4. Jennifer Nace says:

    Am I overlooking it, or it the amount of flour not listed in the ingredients list?
    Help!

  5. Yay! Slowcooker and chilli-two of my favourites

  6. My crockpot looks very similar and it’s still going strong! I love chili, perfect for busy nights because I can usually get two meals out of it! I have to pin this for sure!

    • Crazy how the 20 year old Crock Pot is still around and the one that is only a couple of years old not only cracked but also lost the handle awhile ago!

  7. Nice recipe. Thank you and have a Happy Wednesday.

  8. White chicken chili is one of my faves….I haven’t made it in a while, though. I will have to pull out my slow cooker and try your recipe!!

  9. Love me my crock pot! It’s my best friend most days especially if there was this amazing Chili in it!

  10. Can I use leftover chicken? If so when should I add it?

  11. Ok, so why haven’t I been invited for supper yet?! I looove white chicken chili….the rest of my family, not so much, but I can make what I want sometimes, right? Anyway, i’m definitely going to try this recipe out!

  12. Hi there, I have this in the crockpot right now and cannot wait! Just one question, even though it’s too late since it’s already going. I’m assuming you don’t drain or rinse the beans or drain the corn? Thanks for the recipe!

    • Hey Julie,
      Sorry, I’ve been gone all day and just saw your message. I drained and rinsed my beans, but other recipes I’ve seen online did not, so you should be just fine. I have that in the blog post, but forgot to add it to the recipe at the bottom. The corn I bought didn’t need to be drained. I hope you enjoyed it!
