Friends, this stuff will change your life. Not as much as the crockpot you will cook this likely already has but it will change your life. Yes, it’s that good. There are so many varieties of chili out there, but this creamy white chicken chili will soon be your favorite. Easy prep. No tomatoes so perfect if you have a picky eater in your house or you’re allergic. Easy to make mild or spicy. The best part? You dump everything in your slow cooker and let it do the hard work for you while you live your life. Ideal for a busy weeknight or a lazy Saturday.

You’ll need:

  • 2-3 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 sweet onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 24 oz. chicken broth (low sodium, please)
  • 2 15oz cans great Northern beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 4oz cans diced green chiles (I like one hot, one mild)
  • 1 15oz can whole kernel corn drained
  • a pinch of sea salt 
  • a big pinch of black pepper
  • a pinch of oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  4. Remove chicken to shred, then return to slow cooker.

  5. Add cream cheese and half and half. Stir. Cover and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes, or until chili is creamy and slightly thickened.
