The Best White Chicken Chili

We’re 4 days into September, which means fall is right around the corner! I promised myself I wouldn’t get too crazy about fall recipes right away, but I just can’t help myself! At least it isn’t pumpkin spice, right?

Finally, a healthy comfort food - white chicken chili! This crockpot recipe is perfect for fall! It's got a little kick, but not too spicy. And BONUS - you'll have leftovers, the prep is easy, and your whole family can enjoy it!

There’s just something about autumn that makes you want to wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, snuggle up next to your loved ones, and eat something warm! Crockpot season is officially here (despite the fact that I live in Florida).

Today, I was just craving a big bowl of comfort food! So, I headed to the kitchen to see what ingredients I had. This meal was Billy (boyfriend) approved, and I’m so full I can barely type up the recipe without falling asleep, so I hope you all enjoy it!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of vegetable broth (or chicken)
  • 2-3 large chicken breasts or 5-6 chicken tenders (thawed)
  • 4 cups of great northern beans or 2 cans (I prefer to make mine home-made)
  • 2 cans of green chilies
  • 1 yellow onion thinly diced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
