How to Make White Chicken Chili


  • 1Boil chicken in broth until tender and drain. Set aside to cool then shred
  • 2Sauté onion and garlic in a couple of tablespoons of olive or vegetable oil until tender. Then add the un-drained can of green chilies and sauté 3-4 mins longer
  • 3Drain and rinse the Northern beans and 1 can of the Navy beans. In a food processor blend the remaining un-drained Navy beans until smooth. (This will thicken the chili.)
  • 4Add the 5 cups stock, all spices,cilantro and chicken to the onions, garlic and chilies mixture. Bring to a simmer and stir in the processed Navy beans until smooth. Simmer for about 30 mins. Add the rinsed and drained beans and simmer for about 60 mins
  • 5This would be great done in a slow cooker and is even better the next day. I like to serve it with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.
  • 6* Whenever I boil chicken I like to add lots of seasonings, Tony’s, garlic, onions etc. to the broth for extra flavor.
