Crock Pot Chicken Chili

I have tried several White Chili recipes over the years. I have found several recipes that we like, but this one has become my favorite. I cut it out of a magazine several years ago. I do not remember what magazine it came from but it is a great recipe.

I like this recipe because it is a crock-pot recipe and it uses dried beans instead of canned beans. I am realizing how much better dried beans are. The texture and taste are just better than canned. You can change the seasoning around a little if you like it spicier. My husband likes it spicier but the kids and I like it just the way it is.

    Is the chicken supposed to be cooked or raw when you put it in?? I have cooked, but then I’m wondering if I do it that way, should I substitute part broth for the water.

    • I think using part broth would be good and I think you would want to add the cooked chicken at the end. If the chicken is already cooked you would not want it to be cooking all day. So I would just put it in the last hour or two to heat up and add some flavor. I hope that helps.

        THANK you! I just started the soup in my crockpot for tonight. I used 2 cups of broth and 3 cups of water. I’ll put the chicken in late this afternoon. You saved me from having to go to Plan B for dinner tonight. I’m thankful for your site.
