How to Make Easy White Chicken Chili
You can make this white chicken chili either on the stovetop or in a slow cooker. If I’m making it on the stovetop I do the recipe exactly as below but instead of adding everything to the slow cooker I add it to a large pot and simmer on medium-low for at least two hours.
Also if you work outside the home and want to throw it together quickly in the morning to cook all day, sear the chicken the night before and store in the fridge then dump everything in the crockpot in the morning-don’t skip the searing step, it helps keep the chicken juicy instead of dry!
What to Serve with White Chicken Chili
