Enjoy your new go-to: White Chicken Chili
White Chicken Chili serves 6
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
- 1 cup brown rice, uncooked
- 2 – 15oz cans reduced-sodium Cannellini beans
- 2 hatch chilis, deseeded and chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 2 tsps ground cumin
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Fresh lime wedges
- 1 large ripe avocado
Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. This one is great because it doubles as a pressure cooker
Then add the chicken broth, beans, rice, chiles, garlic, onion, cumin, oregano, paprika, salt, and cayenne. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on the low setting for 4 to 6 hours or high for 2 to 4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through. You can also use a pressure cooker and cook for about 12 minutes on high.
Remove the chicken breasts and set them aside a cutting board to shred once it cools a bit.
Add the chicken back into the slow cooker and stir in.
Serve with fresh lime juice and avocado on top!
Sounds yummy! going to try to make it veggie 🙂
Hi Alicia! You can totally do that! Swap out the protein for your favorite veggies 🙂
What are the macros?
Sounds amazing! Do you drain the cannellini beans or no??
Yes I do!
Where does the cilantro go? Doesn’t say in recipe…thanks Katherine
Hi! It’s sprinkles on top 🙂
Would anything change if you’re making this on a stovetop??
