White Chicken Chili Recipe

Folks will enjoy a change from the traditional when they spoon into this flavorful blend of tender chunks of chicken, white beans and just enough zip. —Taste of Home Cooking School
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) great northern beans, drained, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Sliced jalapeno pepper, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook chicken and onion in oil until lightly browned. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the broth, chilies, cumin, oregano and cayenne; bring to a boil.
  • 2. Reduce heat to low. With a potato masher, mash one can of beans until smooth. Add to saucepan. Add remaining beans to saucepan. Simmer for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and onion is tender.
  • 3. Top each serving with cheese and, if desired, jalapeno pepper. Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts)

Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • One of our staff's favorite time-saving tricks is using shredded rotisserie chicken. We save the bones to make homemade broth in the slow cooker.
  • Can't find great northern beans? Cannellini, navy and pinto all work well here.
  • If you don't have a potato masher, relax! Add all three cans of beans to the Dutch oven. Smush some of the beans against the sides of the pot with a ladle or wooden spoon until chili is slightly thickened.

    "I'd like to join the other 5 star reviewers. Tasty healthy and oh so good. Real Winter Comfort food. I used turkey as that's what I had on hand and like another reviewer I too used the whole can of Mild Green Chilies. I also lost one can of Northern beans and used well rinsed and drained Black Beans and to finish off some Taco spice mix. I also topped it with some Southwestern Tortilla Strips as a garnish. A true Winner.

In the end I had to add 2 cans of corn to bring the spice down to my liking. I also added a little corn starch to thicken it. I will make the recipe again, but the next time I will use only 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne!! And I will keep the corn as well. It adds a nice flavor."

    "Great recipe, I think it'll be the base recipe for any future white chicken chili I make.

    I kicked up the spices and flavor a bit, saut?ed about 6 cloves of crushed garlic, 4 seeded jalape?os and probably five stalks of chopped celery along with the chicken/onion. Also doubled the chicken and onion. I threw in a can of Rotel along with the green chiles. Used two cans mashed great northern beans and then put in a whole can each of the great northern and pinto beans, unmashed. I like things spicy so I had generous teaspoons of the cayenne. I was initially concerned with how spicy it might be but the seeded jalape?os were pretty mild after cooking down a bit.
    It did turn out a bit thin, though may have been my fault, I used a whole 48 oz container of broth. I threw some cornstarch in to help thicken it up a bit. I think in the future I might add another can of mashed beans, add a can of cream of chicken soup, or both.
    Great flavor, definitely a winner for me. Thank you!"

The only changes I made were to use shredded chicken (dark and white meat) from a rotisserie chicken, use refined coconut oil in place of the olive oil, and I cut the cayenne by half a tsp. I am not a big chili fan, so I was looking for something different than a traditional chili recipe. This fit the bill perfectly, and apparently, others agree! Thank you for sharing this recipe."

Otherwise, I'd probably just fry up some chicken with the onions in the first step. 1.5 tsp of cayenne is way too much.

I like it a little spicy but my young kids don't like spicy food. Still very good without the spice. Much better than a brand name seasoning packet for white chicken chili. I think the secret to making it taste restaurant style is crushing a can of beans for the base. That really gives it flavor and more filling instead of being too soupy. I might even add an extra can of crushed beans next time to make it a little thicker."

    "I made this last night for dinner and froze half of it. I thought it was delicious. Never had a white bean chili before. I added a can of corn and uses an extra clove of garlic. I also added some dried Cilantro. I didn't have any Cayenne Pepper, so I added 2 shakes of red pepper flakes. Gave it just enough bite, but not too much. It's very filling. I'll definitely be making this again."

    "Great Recipe.

    I prepared it using the Philadelphia
    Garlic Cooking Creme, which was suggested
    by another poster.
    I used my Crock Pot on low and the chili
    was done in 5 hours.
    Added some olive oil to the pot, uncooked
    diced onion, 2 cans of chopped green chilies,
    seasonings, 4 chopped, frozen & raw boneless
    skinless chicken breast halves, chicken broth,
    one can of the Northern Beans & one
    container of the Philly Cooking Creme.
    By adding the one can of Northern Beans
    at the beginning, I didn't need to mash them.
    About 30 minutes before eating, I added the
    last two cans of drained Northern Beans.
    We added shredded cheese and a dollop
    of sour cream to each bowl before serving.
    DELICIOUS.
    Note: chicken breast halves used - frozen,
    raw, individually packaged halves sold by
    a well known company. Guaranteed freshness
    and equal size. No problem cutting these
    into bite size pieces when frozen.
    The chicken in the chili was tender. Perfect."

    "sorry...i rated the wrong recipe. i didn't try this one. i tried the one called "white bean chicken chili".-- maybe i should have tried this one because i was not impressed with the other recipe anyway."

    "I made this recipe tonight. I was hoping for a thicker broth from the mashed beans but the longer it cooked the thinner it seemed to be. Maybe I am just not a huge fan of white chili. I left out the jalepenos because my kids were eating it. I just thought with all of the other spices and onions, garlic, salt and pepper it would have more of a flavor. It was fair but a bit bland. I will have to say that adding the sour cream and cheese did enhance the flavor but overall I thought it was not that great."

    "This was a very good white chili recipe but I also reduced the cayenne pepper to start because of other reviews. I also thought I had a small can of green chilies in the cabinet but I didn't, so I left them out. Actually, it was a good thing, as the dish is a little spicy for my tastes and it may have been too much had I added those. I also used only 2 cans of great northern beans making this "soupier" than a thick chili. I only did that because I'm the only one here to cook for so I was afraid the recipe as-is would be too large. It came out really well, and I also added some fresh cilantro at the end of cooking. Very good!"

    "Surprisingly tasty! I used turkey instead of chicken, roasted garlic from a jar, reduced the cayenne down to 1/4 tsp, and added 1/4 tsp salt. Also added a bit of half and half to my serving after it was all done -- terrific!!! Can't wait to make this for my hubby."

    "I haven't actually made this exact recipe, but have one very similar that came in an Ortega pamphlet from years ago that's called "chili Blanco". It has long replaced the typical red beef chili at my house. I do add about 1/2 cup of low fat sour cream at the end, and serve it with additional sour cream, shredded cheese, and verde sauce on the side. Love this dish!"
