White Chicken Chili - CrockPot Style

This recipe tastes a thousand times better than it looks!  Testimonials from my family:
Husband: "I would pay money for this in a restaurant"
Youngest Daughter:  "This is better than Panera's soup" 
Sometimes it's nice to have a delicious chili simmering in the Crock Pot & when you walk in the front door after a long day of work you think "man...not only does the house smell awesome, but dinner is done!"  I really hope you give this recipe a try!  Here's what you will need:
  • 8 ounces of boneless, skinless chicken (about 2 breasts)
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans of great northern beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of white hominy OR 1 (15 ounce) can of white corn
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package of reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 (4 1/2 ounce) can of chopped green chilies
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can of condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of reduced sodium chicken broth
  • Toppings:  2 TBSP per serving of sour cream, chopped green onions, & I always like to add a sprinkle of Tortilla Strips

  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker
  • Cover the chicken with beans & hominy
  • In a separate bowl, combine the taco seasoning, chilies, condensed soup, & chicken broth.  Pour over the ingredients in the crock pot.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours
  • Before serving, shred the deliciously moist chicken and return to crock pot & stir
  • Serve with 2 TBSP sour cream, green onions, and tortilla strips, if desired.
Nutrition Facts (chili makes 8 servings):  One serving with sour cream and green onions contains 280 calories, 16 grams of protein, 37 grams of carbohydrate, 7 grams of fat, and 768 mg sodium.  If you want to reduce the sodium(salt) content, replace hominy with white corn.  This chili cost me $7.21 which comes out to $0.90/serving.  That's some savings!  Enjoy!
