This recipe couldn’t be more simple.  I just got a new crockpot because my previous one was worn out from so much use!  This was the first recipe I couldn’t wait to make in the new one. The next will be my kid’s favorite – Crockpot Pizza Casserole [4].

Step 1

For the chili, you simply place all the ingredients, except the beans, corn, and cream cheese (if you’re using) into your slow cooker and let it simmer for 6 hours on low, or 4 hours on high.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless (skinless chicken breasts, thighs, or a mix)
  • 1 large yellow onion (diced)
  • 2 4-ounce cans diced green chili peppers, drained
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 15-ounce cans cannellini or white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 oz cream cheese (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine the chicken, onions, green chili peppers, garlic, cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, coriander, oregano, and bay leaf in a 6-quart or larger crockpot. Stir all ingredients together and pour chicken broth over top.
  • Cover and cook on the high for 4 hours on the low for 6 hours. About 30 minutes before it’s done cooking, add the beans, corn and cream cheese (if using). Taste and add the other 1/2 teaspoon of salt or other seasonings if necessary. Cover and cook for the remaining time.
  • Transfer the chicken to a large plate or cutting board and shred it into bite-sized pieces with 2 forks. Place chicken back into the chili and remove the bay leaf. (For a creamier chili, see Helpful Tips above.)

Notes

  • You can use either chicken breasts or chicken thighs in this recipe, or a combination of both.
  • To make this a healthy crock pot recipe [19], add a grated zucchini to the recipe and cook as usual.
  • This is a flavorful but mild chili, so If you prefer it spicier, feel free to add some jalapeños while the recipe is cooking in addition to adding them as a garnish. 
  • Depending on your preference, you can either leave the chicken in larger chunks or shred it once it’s done cooking.
  • Adding the cream cheese is optional. If you want a creamier chili, add it to the crockpot 30 minutes before it’s done cooking.
  • For thicker chili, blend the liquid with an immersion blender before you put back in your shredded or chunked chicken.
