Fast and Easy Chicken Chili (Crockpot)

We love chicken chili, but our old recipe required a lot of prep and hours of simmering on the stove top. I put this together one morning in the crock pot, and we love coming home to a crock full of hot chili to enjoy with almost no prep! Leftovers freeze well, or we love to put the leftovers right into small containers to enjoy for lunches throughout the week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place frozen chicken breasts in bottom of crock pot.
  2. Sprinkle the packet of taco seasoning over the chicken.
  3. On top of chicken and seasoning pour the black beans, great northern beans, tomatoes and green chilies, cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth.
  4. Cook all day on low, or half day on high.
  5. About one hour before serving, cut up block of cream cheese and drop into crock pot, stirring occasionally to melt.
  6. Before serving, remove chicken breasts, cut into pieces, and mix back into the chili. Serve topped with sour cream or shredded jack cheese if you'd like.

Very simple recipe! I don't like black beans so I just used the Great White Northern. I also use the Hot and Spicy taco seasoning so it ends up being a Spicy Chicken Chili. I love what the cream of chicken and cream cheese do to the chili. I only use two chicken breasts and shred them up after cooking. With a bowl of rice, this chili is probably my favorite ever! It won first prize out of 8 different types of chili in a contest at work!Great recipe and thanks so much for sharing!

I thought this was excellent, with very little effort. I used chicken thighs (personal preference)cut down on the beans, used 2 chili's in Adobe and a "hot"packet of taco seasoning-delish!!
