White Bean Chicken Breast Chili

Rating: 4.67 stars
I love a hearty beef chili as much as the next guy, but once in a while there's nothing wrong with going over to the light side and enjoying an equally comforting bowl of white bean and chicken chili.

Instant Pot® Yardbird Chili with White Beans

Rating: 4.62 stars
White chicken chili using dry great northern beans cooked in a multi-functional pressure cooker. You can make this ahead of time using the pressure-cook mode and then switch over to slow-cooker mode.

Easy White Chili

Rating: 4.62 stars
A very tasty, somewhat spicy, variation of chili that uses chicken. I like to serve it with sweet corn bread.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Rating: 4.69 stars
This recipe was passed down from a friend, and now it is one of our favorites! It's great to make whenever there is left over chicken or turkey around! We pray for colder weather in California just so we can make this soup! You can substitute additional diced tomatoes for the tomatillos. If you would like the soup to be spicier, you can add some red chili flakes or salsa. Serve with these toppings for people to choose from: limes, cilantro, cheese, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

Best Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Rating: 5 stars
Hatch chiles and tomatillos take this white chili to another level. I like to make my own roasted salsa verde but you can always use jarred or canned. Cooked in the slow cooker for ease and convenience. Top with your choice of sliced avocados, shredded cheese, cilantro, or sour cream.

Instant Pot® Colorado Chile Verde

Rating: 4.83 stars
This is a chili that you'll find in the Mountain West--either Colorado or New Mexico. It has a medium heat and complex taste, thanks to green chiles from Hatch, New Mexico. The dish is a simple stew with a cohesive taste across different textures and flavors, that can be thickened as you like it. Serve with bread, tortillas, rice, or even over a breakfast burrito!

Rotisserie Chicken Chili With Hominy and Chiles

Rating: 4.5 stars
Spices permeate the entire dish - cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper - and hominy adds an authentic Southwestern accent to this chicken chili. Save a big chunk of time simply by using rotisserie chickens from the supermarket and canned chicken broth as the chili base.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Rating: 4.67 stars
Delicious white bean chili. Cha Cha says: 'It's kinda spicy, so watch out!' Substitute mild green chiles for the jalapenos if you're scared! Use more chicken and cheese as desired.

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Rating: 4.53 stars
People who have tasted this thick mix of beans, spices and chicken say: 'So good it'll make you perky and stupid!' I've placed in my workplace's annual Halloween chili cook-off for the last three years. Looks strange -- tastes great! Serve with shredded Monterey Jack cheese and warm flour tortillas.

Thai Peanut Chicken Chili

This is a Thai peanut chicken chili recipe I received from a friend of mine. It's awesome. He used pork in his.

Chicken and White Bean Chili

Rating: 4.79 stars
A light, spicy soup that is great in any season. I hope you enjoy this recipe; my family sure does! For spicier tastes, add more cayenne or your favorite hot sauce. Serve with crackers, cheddar cheese, or sour cream.
