Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

"This white chicken chili recipe is adapted from a Betty Crocker slow cooker recipes cookbook. I often use frozen chicken breasts, and it can also be prepared conventionally on the stove top. Great comfort food!"

  1. Excellent!! I read the other reviews and changed a few things: chopped up half of an onion and layered it under the chicken when I placed it in the bottom of the crock pot, added a can of yellow corn, a can of diced tomatoes, and chopped up half of a jalapeno pepper to add some kick (I'm saving the other half of the pepper to slice as a garnish). Other than that I did everything the same. I put everything in the crock pot last night and just shredded the chicken this morning. It is so SO good, we are having a hard time waiting to get into it before the football game today! I will serve the sour cream separately. Right now the soup tastes just perfect and I don't want to change anything!
  2. I used navy beans, yellow corn, and mild green chilies, as that was what I had at home. I completely forgot to add the sour cream and only had cheddar cheese instead of Monterey Jack, but we all enjoyed it very much. Definitely going into the keeper file :)
  3. So I googled White Chicken Chili and this recipe popped up. After reading the reviews, I thought ok, sounds good, but 5 stars-really? is an amazing recipe. I don't know what makes it so good, but yum!!! I subsituted a few things too, whatever I had in my pantry. I used creamed corn, small white beans and the seasoning mix from a chicken chili kit I bought. Thank God I didn't just use the kit, it would have paled in comparison!!! The recipe doesn't need any additional salt or seasoning. The sour cream adds just the right little something! We now have the makings for this recipe in our house at all times, for cold snowy days and it is our comfort food "go to" recipe! Thanks!!!
  4. Yum! I placed the chicken breast in the pot and added 1 can of white beans (drained), one can of black beans (rinsed and drained), one can of corn (drained) and a can of tomatoes with chilies. Instead of taco seasoning I used a packet of McCormick’s White Chicken Chili seasoning. Delicious!

  5. Yummy! Hadn't planned on changing anything, but realized that I only had cream of mushroom soup in the pantry and no cream of chicken. It was still delicious! We'll definitely make this again and again and I'm sure it'll be even better with the right kind of soup.


  1. This is an excellent recipe. To elevate the flavor, I add two cloves of garlic, a chopped onion, and a jalapeño pepper. I also make my own taco seasoning and cream of chicken soup, both of which are extremely easy to cook but make the flavor so much better!
  2. Excellent recipe. Everyone always loves it. I substitute the taco seasoning with McCormick White chicken chili seasoning. I think it turns out better.
  3. Renamed to Southwest Chicken Stew. Followed the recipe except I used black beans, garbanzo beans and cream of mushroom soup. I added extra chilis, a medium sweet onion, and 2 jalapenos. I also added 1/2 tablespoon of chipotle chili powder. Served with sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and corn chips. Delicious!! Thank you!
  4. Switched out one of the cans of white beans with a can of garbanzo, since I had them in my cupboard. Yum yum!!
  5. This was very good. Added a can of diced tomatoes while cooking as well as some diced yellow and orange bell peppers. To add some spice to the adult portions I? added some buffalo hot sauce once already plated and topped with cilantro.
