Happy Wednesday, friends!
Today, I’m reposting and updating one of THE MOST POPULAR RECIPES ON MY BLOG. Ever. Period. End of story.
I shared my White Chicken Chili recipe on my 31st birthday. How funny is that?! Spoiler alert, that was 10½ years ago. Since sharing that recipe over a decade ago, I can see on my end how it’s been revisited time and time again. Still to this day, I get emails, DMs and blog comment asking about it. I understand why everyone is a fan…it checks all the boxes! It’s easy. It’s prepared in the slow cooker. It uses chicken plus only a handful of other ingredients. It feeds a crowd. AND IT’S DELICIOUS! I’ve updated it over the years for my family, and it’s also now gluten-free 🙂 .
If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for? I’m telling you, it will be a family-fave that you return to time and time again!
White Chicken Chili
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: up to 8 or 10 hours on low
- Total Time: 2 minute
- Yield: 4 to 6 (depending on how much you add in)
The easiest and most delicious slow cooker soup for busy nights. Bonus, this recipe is easy to “tweak”. If you have a larger family, you don’t necessarily have to double every ingredient. Just add in more chicken and a bit more of whatever you guys love the most. It’s pretty impossible to mess this one up. Add it all in, turn on the slow cooker and forgot about it until dinnertime!
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (we always use about three pounds now for our family of six)
1 onion, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup (use g-free chicken or mushroom if you don’t eat gluten)
1 cup tomatillo or green chile salsa (using more chicken? add more!)
1 can chopped green chiles (using more chicken? add another can!)
1 can white northern beans, drained
1 cup water or chicken stock (using more chicken? add a bit more!)
Pepper Jack Cheese, cilantro, diced avocado and/or Chopped Green Onions to garnish
In your slow cooker, layer chicken, onion, soup, salsa, green chiles, beans and water. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours (or on high 3 to 4 hours).
Remove lid and take two forks and shred chicken up right inside the slow cooker.
Ladle into bowls and garnish with cheese, cilantro, avocado and/or onions.
That’s it! You pile everything in, ignore it all day and then it’s ready for you at dinner time.

Your White Chicken Chili is our most favorite meal (that says a lot because you have so many delicious recipes)! My daughter is now making it on repeat, too. Every time I serve it, when we pray over our meal someone always says, “…and please bless Shay for her White Chicken Chili recipe!”
With frequent power outages in California, I’ve made a lot of White Chicken Chili over the last few weeks, as I can plug my crockpot into our generator. Thanks for sharing your recipes, Shay!
That’s so sweet, “please bless Shay…”❤️
I love finding easy and delicious recipes, and this White Chicken Chili seems perfect! I appreciate that it can be tweaked to fit the needs of my family and can be cooked in a slow cooker. Can’t wait to try it!
