White Chicken Chili


We had a few days of amazing weather last week. Like the days were your body starts to itch for Spring. We played outside, wore jackets, etc. then all of a sudden...ya, we woke up to another snow day with ice and snow on the ground. Grrr....I guess is only January and I got a little ahead of myself, and good ol'mother nature as well.

We ate our last crock pot meal Monday night so with all the freezing temps and snow on the ground I searched Pinterest for easy white chicken chili recipe. Obviously there are at least a million a lot to choose from...I read a few and decided on this ONE.

It was for sure as east as it looks...just a crock pot and a few ingredients, though I won't say it wasn't a bit $$. The total was about $20 for the crock pot full....it will probably serve 4-6 so I guess per serving that isn't bad but when checking out at the grocery with ONLY the items to make the chili I was a little bummed. LOL!
*also keep in mind we do purchase all organic when possible so that does play into the cost a LITTLE bit*

Here are the items needed:
  1. One package of chicken breasts (~2.75 lbs)
  2. One carton of chicken broth (32 oz.)
  3. Two packets of McCormick White Chicken Chili seasoning
  4. 1 small can of corn
  5. 1 medium can of pinto beans
  6. 2 small cans of hatch green chilies (4 oz. each)
  7. 1/2 cup-1 cup of water (if you feel like it needs more liquid) 


I did use an already cooked chicken. My mom says it is the best chicken for the chili ;). I also pulled a coupon for a free one with the purchase of one...SCORE! That did mean I had to pull it from the bone but I managed...
What was left Wyatt ate EVERY last bite...

*Also note it was a bit on the spicy side. My little's usually eat their own meals (judge me if you want) so it wasn't a big issue but I would only use 1 or .5 of the chilies if you don't like spicy food.
*I also didn't need ANY water and still found it a bit runny...just FYI.

Directions:
  1. Trim the chicken…
  2. Add the chicken to the crock-pot
  3. Drain the corn and beans and add to the crock pot
  4. Add the chilies, broth, and water
  5. Cook for about 4 hours on high or 6 on low
Notes: You can cook the chicken from frozen, but it will take longer to cook. You can leave on low for the whole day if you need to, but on high it cooks relatively fast.
*I used the already cooked chicken but still cooked it for 6 hrs. Just FYI 

We topped with sour cream and cheese. It was perfect and I will for sure cook again. A few notes though:  *it wasn't the cream white chili I have had before
*it wasn't cheesy
*it was still great and got a "make again" from the Mr. ;)
