Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
Easy weeknight meals is one thing my readers want more of! Thanks to all that took my reader survey I learned a lot about the type of recipes you guys want to see more of.
I am right there with you when it comes to easy weeknight meals.
I am already starting to think of some of my go-to, easy weeknight meal recipes that I can share with you guys.
For starters I am adding this Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili into the mix. White chicken chili has always been a favorite of mine.
While I enjoy a traditional bowl of chili, there is something about white chicken chili that just gets me every time.
I think it is a bit lighter, since it uses chicken, which is one reason I love it. I also think the diced green chilies and the white beans give it a nice flavor and texture.
I used this White Chicken Chili recipe from my site and changed it a bit to create today’s Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili.
Today’s recipe uses boneless, skinless chicken thighs which was a new twist to my old recipe.
In the old recipe I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, which you can still use in today’s recipe if you want, but I really like the way the chicken thighs add that tender, darker meat to the chili.
While today’s recipe is easy, because slow cooker recipes can’t get much easier, it does require a few more ingredients than just a chicken and vegetable dinner.
But the nice thing is I can get this recipe into my slow cooker in 10 minutes.
Not too shabby, right?
Once the Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili has cooked for 5 1/2 hours, pull the lid off and shred the chicken with two fork. Return that tender, juicy chicken back into the slow cooker, mix everything together and cook for another 1/2 hour.
This meal is great because you can garnish it with your favorites like cheese, sour cream, avocado and fresh cilantro.
All you need to do is add a nice side salad, a simple vegetable and maybe some corn bread!
My mom made white chicken chili a lot when I was growing up, so this always reminds me of her.
