"This SCREAMS 6 *s It was sooo good. I couldnt belive the taste. I did make some changes. I boiled the chicken in water, to omit the oil. I also doubled the cumin, pepper, and mustard and put it all in the crockpot on high for 3 hours. It turned out so wonderful! I didnt use any chips, sour cream or cheese...the taste was fabulous by itself and I wanted to savor it! Thanks for a keeper!"
"Ohhhhh Shari2!!!!! Did this ever hit the spot! We had a cold rainy day and I thought perfect to make your White Chicken Chili. I made it exactly as you stated and it was tummy-patting good. I recommend this to everyone. :-) "
"I took this recipe up a notch to spicy. I did use chicken stock, leftover chicken, diced smoked sausage, can of green chilies, pinch of cayenne pepper and a couple slashes of hot sauce. Simmered 5 hours in the crock pot. Excellent. Good base recipe."
"Shari2, brilliant! So simple, so basic, and so wonderful! If around, I might wait a little to add the other can of beans. No cheese, sour cream or chips necessary, great the way it is."
"I have always wanted to make white chili, and this recipe was a good base. I immediately noticed the lack of fluid vs. the beans and chicken (only 1 cup?), so I used 1-14.5oz can chicken broth for the fluid, plus 1 cup of water. I also used Cannellini beans (white kidney beans - more consistent with a chili recipe!). I used the spices as stated but added a tsp. of chili powder. Also think about using rotisserie chicken with this - that's what I did - just shredded it up. My hubby and I loved it. No optional ingredients needed except I put a little chopped cilantro on mine! When I sauteed the onions and garlic, I made a roux by adding a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of butter b/c I like thick chili then added the liquids until thick and proceeded with the recipe. It was great."
"I can't thank you enough for posting this recipe. I have looked for it for years since my "Eat Great, Lose Weight" Prevention cookbook disappeared during a few moves!! :) THANK YOU!! This is by far my favorite White Chicken Chili recipe."
"This recipe was really easy and it was nice to have such little cleanup after dinner. The recipe as is, with no modifications, was a little on the bland side for our tastes, but was still good and probably could be easily adjusted. The cheddar cheese and the chips were an addition that we would not skip. Thanks."
"I thought this recipe was great. I wanted it a little spicier so I doubled the spices and added cayenne, chili powder, diced jalapenos, one can of drained tomatoes. I also added more broth. This is an awesome recipe."
"This is an excellant recipe. I have uped the great northern beans to 3 cans, uped chicken broth to 14oz, and added 1 4 oz can green chilis, and 1 8 oz can drained white corn. I sometimes add 2 tsp of chopped jaleponos also."
"Great Chili! I was looking for a recipe similar to one a friend gave me that I lost and this one was close to it so I tried it and the family loved it. I did omitt a few items and felt that the quantities listed weren't enough for my family of 5. I made it again tonight and used 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed, 1 yellow onion minced, and 3 cloves of garlic. I threw these ingredients into a skillet with 2 tablespoons olive oil and cooked until meat was white. I added them to the crock pot with 4 cans (wish I had 5) of northern beans, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cumin, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 1 4 oz can diced green chili peppers. I diced 1/2 of a red bell pepper and sauteed them with the juice left from the chicken and onion mixture then added them to the chili for a splash of color. I cooked everything all together in the crockpot on high for 2 hours or on low for 4 hours. I served them over tortilla chips with sour cream, grated cheddar and chopped green onions. This is the perfect summer meal."
"I made this recipe using leftover turkey that my husband cooked in his smoker. It added a wonderful smoky flavor and was perfect!"
"This was just not to our tastes. Thanks for sharing though, I really enjoy trying new recipes!"
"Very, very good. We enjoyed this! I made the chicken with a poached chicken recipe from this site, added the onion and garlic without pre-sauteeing in oil to save fat/calories, doubled the mustard, cumin and pepper and used 1 can of great northern beans and 1 can of pinto beans. I did add one can of Rotel as someone else mentioned and served this with some whole wheat farfalle. I cooked this on high in the crockpot for 2.5-3 hours and it was perfect! I forgot all about the cheese, sour cream and chips and didn't miss them! My children (ages 3 & 5) liked it a lot too! Will definitely make again. Great meal on this snow-bound day!"
"This is very very good! I make this recipe stove top and let it simmer, it is wonderful and tastes even better the next day! All was prepared, cooked and served in under an hour. I used 2 chicken breast and halved everything else and it turned out wonderful. I used White Kidney beans because I couldn't find northern beans..... this has nice mild flavours and was a wonderful healthy dinner. Will make again!~"
"Pretty good. Like others, I also doubled the spices. I also added a can of green chilies. It is pretty white too. I ended up adding some fresh parsley to add some color."
"A new family favorite! I didn't expect to like this one at all, but even our pickest of eaters is a fan. I've even substitued a can black eyed peas and pinto beans, simply b/c I was out of the white ones, and it was just as good!"
"I made this as is - it was just ok. I should have taken the advice to spice it up a bit - and I'd add celery or green pepper ot another veggie to give this some color."
"So yummy! This had great taste and was very easy... And it is great the next day for lunch too!"
"I can't believe I haven't rated this recipe before! I've made it so many times. I always make it with leftover chicken from cooking a whole chicken. The only change I usually make is to use pepper jack cheese shredded on top instead of the cheddar. I'm making it tonight with leftover Thanksgiving turkey to go in the crockpot tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it! Thanks so much for sharing!"
"Great taste, easy to make!"
