This easy, super delicious 4 ingredient white bean chili chicken in a slow cooker is one of the BEST chicken dishes you’ll ever put in your mouth.
This white bean chili chicken is literally my favorite recipe find for 2019!
Four ingredients. That’s right. FOUR. (Salt & pepper & olive oil spray are givens and never count; I use them for everything)
This dish is perfect in every way.
Healthy. Low carb. High protein.
And it takes 5 minutes to prep (at most). And 4-6 hours to slow cook. That’s. It.
Look at the beautiful bowls my sweet friends Marie and Christine Marino made with this yummy white bean chili chicken….
Ingredients for White Chili Chicken
Boneless skinless chicken breasts
Boneless, skinless breasts are perfect for this recipe. I buy these every Tuesday at The Fresh Market here in Birmingham. If you buy large ones, simply cut them into smaller pieces that are uniform in size.
Canned White Beans
Canned white beans work beautifully for this dish. Cannellini (aka white kidney beans) or Northern beans are great. You can use one or two cans, depending upon your preference. Drain the beans, but do not rinse.
White Chili Seasoning Mix
In the grocery aisle where spices and mixes are found, you’ll find packets of chili mix, gravy mix, etc. The chili seasoning you want for this dish is WHITE CHILI mix. It may take a minute to find it (I had to look hard), but it should be there. McCormick makes it; that’s the brand I buy. You might also find a store brand (I think Publix has one) ~that’s fine, too.
Jarred Pepperoncini Peppers and Juice
This dish uses pepperoncini peppers, which I always keep in my pantry (unopened) or fridge (once opened). I use them in my Mississippi roast and in this dish. You’ll use half a jar for each dish unless you just want tons of peppers (or you double the chicken). You’ll use the peppers and the juice. They give the dish a piquant tang that is fabulous.
Because I always use kosher salt, black pepper, and EVOO spray on my meat, I don’t count them as ingredients in this dish. But I do spray my breasts and season them with s & p before adding the other ingrdients.
My Favorite Slow Cooker
You may use any slow cooker for this recipe, but I have a hands down favorite~this stainless casserole crock pot. I use this for most of my slow cooker recipes like spaghetti sauce, this chili recipe, or smaller size recipes that don’t require a deep 6 quart slow cooker. In the main recipe photo for this post, the chicken is made in a regular slow cooker. In the videos, I am using a casserole crock pot.
See how easy it is to make!
