White Bean Chicken Chili

White Bean Chicken Chili - Recipe White Bean Chicken Chili - Recipe

A hearty one-pot chili recipe with plenty of seasoned chicken, Great White Northern beans and loads of seasonings. Good old comfort food!

We like a spicy white bean chicken chili as an alternative to more traditional tomato-based chili recipes, just to mix things up every once in a while. This one is easy to make. You can also just toss it all into a crock pot after step 2 below and wait.
