White Bean Chicken Chili {Crockpot Recipe}

~ Wow, it's been a while since I've made a post to my blog. 
Shame on me!

~ I love to cook and since the temps are cooler now,
it gets me to thinking about soups and stews.  

~ I love that aroma that you smell as soon as you open your door to come inside
after simmering some soup or a stew all day. 

~ I found a recipe but made changes to it to
incorporate my own flavors,
my husband says I need to make this
again and again, so I guess it's a keeper.

~ I am sharing this recipe so you too, can enjoy it.

White Bean Chicken Chili


1 pound diced, cooked chicken meat
(I used 4 chicken breasts and cooked them in the crockpot the day before)
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (I used canaola oil)
1 small onion chopped into small pieces
2 cloves minced garlic
(I have minced garlic in a jar in my refrigerator, the back of the jar gives the instructions for replacing fresh garlic)
1  14 oz can of chicken broth (I used 99% fat free and low sodium)
1  16 oz can diced tomatoes with chiles (this gives the chili a little bang)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can cream of corn
1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of cream of celery soup
2  15 oz cans of white northern beans (drained and rinsed) (I used Bush's brand)
salt/pepper to taste

In a large pan, heat oil, and cook onion and garlic until soft.
Stir in broth, tomatoes, spices and bring to a boil, then
simmer for 10 minutes.

Add both cans of corn, cream of celery soup and mix and simmer to blend well. 

Place diced chicken in the bottom of the crockpot, toss in drained white beans and mix, pour the mixture you've been simmering over the chicken and beans, mix well and set your crockpot on low and cook all day. 

It's an amazing soup with just a little bit of bang to it!

PS... if you want more of a bang to your white bean chicken chili, you can add chiles to it, this recipe orginally called for one 7 oz can of diced green chiles but for my husband and I, the chiles added from the canned tomatoes were PLENTY hot.

Enjoy ♥
