Easy White Chicken Chili

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 8

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1.5 lb (about 2 large) chicken breasts, raw
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 4-oz. cans green chiles
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • Optional Toppings: Greek yogurt, cilantro, cheddar cheese, jalapeno, lime, tortilla chips
  1. Saute onions in olive oil until soft. Add in garlic for one minute and then add in all spices.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash 1 cup of beans with a potato masher until soft. (You will use this to thicken the soup.)
  3. Add broth, mashed and regular beans, green chiles, fire roasted tomatoes and corn into pot. Then add in the chicken breasts and cook at medium-high heat.
  4. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through. This will vary depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
  5. Once chicken is cooked, turn off heat and take it out. When chicken is cool enough to handle, shred with two forks.
  6. Add the chicken back in, along with the juice of one lime and the Greek yogurt.
  7. Stir all together and serve with extra toppings such as cilantro, Greek yogurt, cheese, tortilla strips and jalapenos.

For crockpot: Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Shred chicken with fork and place back into crockpot for serving.
