White Chicken Chili is made with chicken breast,  Northern beans, yellow onion, chicken broth, salsa verde and seasonings. Top with sour cream , fresh avocado slices, tortilla strips and cilantro. 


  • 1 pound Northern beans (soaked overnight)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 12 ounces salsa verde
  • 48 ounces chicken broth
  • 1 yellow onion (chopped)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper

  1. Soak the beans in water overnight. 
  2. Place drained beans, chicken, salsa verde, and chicken broth into crock-pot. 
  3. Dice the onion and mince the garlic cloves. Place into crock-pot along with 2 teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon pepper and a bay leaf. I also like to add a sprig of rosemary when I have it on hand. 
  4. Cook on low 8-10 hours. 
  5. Remove the rosemary sprig and bay leaf. 
  6. Remove the chicken breasts, shred, and return to crock-pot. 
  7. Mash some of the beans on the side the crock-pot with your ladle or spoon to thicken up the soup to your preference. 
  8. Serve with your favorite toppings like sour cream, fresh cilantro and tortilla strips.
