White Bean and Chicken Chili

White Bean and Chicken  Chili


I usually don’t share recipes that are lengthy in cooking time, but this one is well worth it. It’s absolutely yummy, my family loves this meal. I hope your family enjoys it as well.




1 lb dried white beans


1½ lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut


into bite-size pieces


5 cups chicken broth


1 onion, chopped


3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced


2 (4-oz) cans diced green chiles


1 tablespoon ground cumin


1 tablespoon chili powder


2 teaspoons garlic salt


½ teaspoon pepper


8 oz package shredded Monterey Jack cheese


1 cup sour cream





Sort and rinse beans, discarding any debris.


Combine beans, chicken, broth, onion, jalapeno, chiles, cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, and pepper in a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker.


Cover and cook on High 1 hour.


Reduce heat to Low, and cook 8 hours.


Stir in cheese and sour cream; cook 30 minutes or until blended and thoroughly heated.



If you really want to cut down cooking time you can substitute the dried beans with canned beans. And cook in a pot on the stove versus a slow cooker. I have made it like this as well, when time has been an issue. It does come out yummy, however the slow cooker recipe is definitely better.

    This sounds delicious, I love recipes that utilize chicken or turkey in place of ground beef or pork. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
