Gluten and Dairy Free Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

9:00 AM

I love a good hearty chili on those cool crisp southern winter days. Especially on a Sunday with football on in the background and a warm dish cooking up in the crockpot *instantly feels all warm and cozy*

I've made this recipe a couple times over this Florida fall/winter season. Each time finding what works and does not work. So know this recipe is best if you follow the directions below exactly.

It's become a favorite of the husbands as it's a nice break from my bean chili. Which is also very good but in his words, "it needs meat" 🙄
Just a few simple ingredients blend well together in this protein filled set and forget a meal!

Then place the chicken back into the crockpot and let it cook for another 20-30 minutes.After that time, you can use an immersion blender to blend the soup a tad, don't blend too much or you will lose your beans.

*Chicken Thighs really work the best. I've used Chicken Breast but they tend to be on the dry side and don't compliment the soup well.
*Northern Beans do work the best, but if you can't find them White Kidney beans will work as well,
