Healthy Dinner Recipe: Slow-Cooker White Chicken Chili

All things health, happiness + healing- helping you lead a kick-ass life…

White chicken chili


One of the goals I had set for myself this year was to try new recipes- I too often get in the habit of cooking the same cycle of meals over & over again, which is funny considering that my Pinterest Boards only have about 2,000 different meal options!

So with the weekend ahead I thought I’d start off with a tried-and-true favorite- White Chicken Chili! I had originally posted this recipe on another blog I was writing at the time and to be honest, haven’t revisited it since; but with this MI winter still in high-gear, I figure it’s time to blow the dust off the ole crockpot and get to work in the kitchen!

The original post went something like this:

Harvest 2016 is almost in the books- The busyness of the season, while exciting, is starting to take a toll on us all; and I can’t wait to get back to a few days where we are not running the combine in the fields…Though in full disclosure, it’s the guys who deserve the credit for a job well done this year! Perhaps the first year in many where I haven’t run a bin full of beans or corn down to the co-op!


  • 2.5 lbs boneless/skinless chicken (I prefer chicken thighs for this recipe but chicken breasts work too)
  • 2- 8oz. cans diced green chilies
  • 1/3 C Cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. Garlic
  • 3 cans Great Northern Beans
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 2 C Chicken Broth
  • 1 C Milk  (I’m a dairy girl so I use the real deal, but feel free to substitute Coconut or Almond milk)
  • 1/4 C cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp Cumin


  1. Dump chicken, beans, chilies, onion, garlic, cumin, salt & pepper, milk and broth in crockpot on high for 5-6 hrs. or on low for 7-8- make sure chicken is cooked and tender.
  2. Shred chicken once tender and mix well.
  3. Add cornstarch- to avoid clumps in chili, first mix cornstarch in approximately 1/2 of water till smooth and then add to rest of mixture.
  4. Let thicken in slow-cooker for an additional 1/2 hour.
  5. Add fresh cilantro before serving. If desired, add sour cream, shredded mozzarella cheese or any other favorite toppings.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
