Chicken Chili

Expand your chili repertoire with this simple white chili. This recipe makes a small batch, which is perfect for testing something new, but it can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a bigger group. Try your hand at playing with great chili: for a slightly sweeter profile, use a red or orange bell pepper instead of green and add a pinch of cloves.

Tip: If you like a thicker chili, mash part of the beans before adding to the pot to give it more body.


  • 8 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup chopped bell pepper
  • ½ jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

    Optional Garnishes*:

    • 2 Tbsp. chopped tomato
    • 2 Tbsp. sliced green onion


  1. Preheat medium skillet over medium-high heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray and brown chicken in hot skillet. Drain off any fat.
  2. Combine all ingredients except optional tomato and green onions in a heavy-bottomed pot or a slow cooker. If using a pot, simmer on low until chili is thick and bubbling and chicken is cooked through (1-2 hours). If using a slow cooker, cover and cook on LOW (5-6 hours) or on HIGH (3-4 hours).
  3. Serve hot, garnished with tomato and green onion if desired.
