A savory delight! This slow cooked chili isn't just yummy, it's also a prize winner. It uses chicken thighs which stay more tender and moist than white meat chicken. It's a mild chili using only a small amount of hot sauce, so feel free to dress it up if you wish.
1 1/2 pound skinless chicken thighs 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 can (14 ounce size) chicken broth 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon oregano salt and pepper 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce 2 cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed 1 can (15 ounce size) shoepeg corn 3 tablespoons lime juice 2 tablespoons cilantro
Mix onion, garlic, broth, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper sauce in 4 qt. slow cooker. Add chicken. Cover and cook on low 4 - 5 hours. Remove chicken and debone. Shred chicken and return to cooker. Add beans, corn, lime juice and cilantro. Cover and cook on low 20 minutes.
A great comfort dish when the cold weather hits. A succulent bowl of this Mexican inspired chili would be perfect served with a basket of warm rolls or cornbread. You can adjust the heat by adding less or more pepper sauce. You could also substitute the chicken thighs with split chicken breasts or turkey legs and thighs. Adding a dollup of sour cream right before serving would also make this more appealing and savory.

A different take from traditional chili. With juicy chicken, beans, corn, herbs and spices in broth. Something different. We liked it a lot.

This slow cooked, easy to make white chicken chili will be a delicious dinner for cold winter nights. It is packed with protein from the chicken and beans. Serve with a salad for a highly nutritious low carb meal. You could also melt cheese on top and serve with tortilla chips for a tasty snack.

Delicious! And by adding the remaining ingredients during the end of the cook time the flavors stay very distinguished.

I used boneless thighs and cooked and then shredded them and added the remaining ingredients.

I found this receipe last year. I cooked it for a chilli cook-off in my office and I took home 2nd place. Everyone at my agency loved this chilli, it was something different from all the regular chili that they had to taste from. I also made this chili for a party at my aunt's house in upstate New York. Everyone loved it there and many people where trying to find ways to take it home before the end of the party. All in all this is a good receipe for you to try and will win over many hearts!!!

This recipe is so easy to make and really comes out yummy! I usually doctor it up just a little with more seasonings, but for ease of use and little amount of ingredients you get a big return.

This recipe earned rave reviews from my guests for an Academy Awards viewing party. Doubled the recipe with no problem at all. I was very generous with the lime juice. After spooning into bowls, add a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with chopped green onions and cilantro.

I made this today exactly as the recipe called for. I thought it was excellent!! Something different and quite tasty. Next time will add a little more heat. A keeper for cold days outside!
