Easy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
Allow me to share the things I love about this chili. In fact, I’ll just bullet point my notes for you…just because 🙂
- We’re using simple, everyday ingredients…nothing weird, and should be found at your regular ole grocery store.
- 15 minute prep, so NO pre-cooking anything. It’s a throw-and-go!
- Great recipe for any season…who doesn’t love chili any time of the year?!
A couple things to note about the ingredients for this recipe…I use boneless, skinless, chicken thighs, which translates to hassle free, fall-apart, juicy, tender chicken chili. No dry chicken…ever!
Also, I recommend using as many garnish ingredients suggested in the recipe below (cilantro, jalapeños, sour cream, lime, etc)…because they were made for this chili!
My healthy tips when making Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili:
- Opt for reduced-sodium chicken broth and no salt added beans. This way, you’re in complete control of the salt content.
- Mash up one of the cans of beans to help develop a naturally creamier consistency; this avoids adding unnecessary extra ingredients as thickeners.

- slow cooker (the newer version of my vintage crockpot)
Check out this vintage Crockpot brand slow cooker I picked up at the thrift store for $10! I was super stoked to find this thing b/c…they just don’t make them like they used to!
I know that the vintage cookers don’t let you take out the ceramic insert, but I’ll sacrifice that feature any day knowing that this slow cooker truly cooks slower than some of these newer slow cookers. I’ve been researching, as well as testing, and I’m going to report my findings here on the blog at a later date. Stay tuned!
