White Chicken Chili

Fall is definitely in the air here. So it's a good time for me to post another recipe, as promised.

So here's my recipe for white chicken chili, adapted from a recipe by Sandra Lee. It's perfect for busy moms, dads, anyone, because you can throw everything in the crockpot. That leaves you free to chase kids, change diapers, work, do laundry, and tackle everything else that needs to be done.

Wine is usually my beverage of choice, but this is great with a beer.

White Chicken Chili (for the crockpot)
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces (I like a mix of white and dark meat)
2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 can creamed corn
1 can corn
2 cans diced mild green chile peppers (1 if you want less heat)
1 C. chopped onion
2 tsp. garlic
2 tsp. ground chipotle
1 C. chicken broth
2 packets McCormick's white chicken chili seasoning mix

Throw all the ingredients in your crockpot and stir. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high 2-3 until chicken is cooked through.

Oh yum. I'll be entering this in our chili cookoff next month (hope you don't mind). Wish me luck!

Enter away! I think the chipotle makes the dish.

Good luck,

This is my favorite white chicken chili recipe! Except I change mine up a bit just like you did. So easy and so satisfying.

Do you drain any of the canned stuff (other than the beans)?

I'm going to make this tomorrow :) Thank you!

You could drain the corn, too, if you like a thicker chili. I sometiems use frozen corn and then I find I add a little water -- maybe a half cup at the end to make it a little more juicy. I suppose that's about the equivalent of the liquid in the can of corn.

Hope it turns out for you!

Hey Christy, I made this again -- third time -- and have AGAIN had requests for your recipe. I came in second place (by only one point) this time (to a vegetarian chili, can you believe it?) and it was gone before I could get a bowl for lunch! I'm pointing recipe requests to your url :)
