Good 4 You-White Chicken Chili

Good 4 You -White Chicken Chili

1 or 2 Lbs. cooked & cubed chicken breast (I cut it up and cooked it in my crockpot for 30 mins on high with the oil)
1-2 Tbs oil
Packet of McCormick chicken chili seasoning
1 ½ cups chicken broth
1 or 2 cans great northern beans with liquid
1 can white or yellow corn
2 small cans green chilis –optional

Directions:  You can cook the chicken in the crockpot.  To the cooked chicken, add seasoning mix and broth. Then add beans, corn, and green chilis, keep on low in crockpot for 2-4 hours…OR stovetop for just 20 mins…top with lowfat shredded cheese, lite sour cream, and chopped green onions…serve with baked corn tortilla chips ! YUM!

-I added a can of pinto beans.
-I left out the cheese, sour cream and chips.

Here's what I started with:

Here's how I did it:
#1 I put 2 frozen chicken breasts in a crockpot with a couple Tbsps of olive oil and let it cook for about an hour.

#2 After the chicken and thawed and cooked for about an hour, I cut it up into chunks and then seasoned it with Home Seasoning.

#3 I added the white chicken chili seasoning, chicken broth, corn, green chiles and beans to the crockpot and let it cook for about 5 hours.

The Finished Product:

Talk about good!  This dish was so easy and so good.  It was healthy with the chicken breasts and beans.  Since the broth comes from chicken stock and the liquid of the beans, there is no "cream of xx" involved.

I only put one can of the green chiles in and I think that was perfect especially if you are serving it to children.  If you want a little more kick, go ahead and add the extra can.

I did end up adding a can of pinto beans, which the recipe did not call for, because since I didn't measure out the chicken stock, my chili was too runny.  Once I added the pinto beans, I had a great consistency and I love the extra meatiness of pinto beans.

I served this chili with a side of Jiffy corn bread  muffins.

One of the best things about this meal is that it takes about 5 minutes of prep time.  I'd recommend fresh chicken breasts for a faster prep then pop open a couple of cans and walk away!

Hope you enjoy!

I agree, Riss. In the past, I have NOT LIKED white chicken chili-I think it had something to do with the seasonings. The McCormick's white chicken chili takes the thought of flavors out of the equation and this is really, really good. So easy. You can eat with tortilla chips, corn bread, crackers, etc. I would either shred the chicken after a couple of hours or use fresh chicken that can be cut up in smaller bites (ours were a bit chunky) but the flavor was awesome!
