  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 30 ounces white beans 2) 15 ounce cans Cannellini or Great Northern
  • 14.5 ounce can sweet corn
  • 8 ounce can fire-roasted diced green chilies
  • 4 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice about 1/2 a lime
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Place chicken breasts in slow cooker. Add the chicken stock, onion, beans, chiles, garlic, cumin, and cayenne. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 2 to 4 hours, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken and place on a large plate or platter. Shred with two forks and return to the slow cooker.
  • Add the cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with Greek yogurt, shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, avocado slices, or any of your favorite toppings.


  • I have seen recipes that puree part of the beans to make a thicker, creamier chili. That is completely up to you.
  • You can also add the sour cream/Greek yogurt to the whole batch to make it creamier if that is what you are going for.
  • To kick up the heat add a fresh jalapeno or two with the onions and garlic, maybe even a Serrano pepper.
