White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili | heatherlikesfood.com

Easy slow-cooker meals are definitely the way to my heart during crazy weekdays. If I can throw it in into the pot and not have to think about it again until I come home hours later to a deliciously scented home, I’m in love. Well, as long as it tastes good–there are a lot of things you can throw into a slow cooker and forget about that I wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole. 20 even.

This white chicken chili is the perfect “set it and forget it” kind of meal that I would gladly curl up in bed next to (I’m not sure what that even means). It goes into the pot and 3,4,5,6 hours and a few stirs and shreds later you have a super flavorful meal.

Place your chicken, chicken broth, green salsa (click here for a few notes on green salsa), onion, beans, herbs and spices in your slow cooker. Set it to cook on LOW for 5-6 hours, or HIGH 3-4 hours.

When time’s up take the chicken out to shred and return to the chili; stir in some sour cream and cilantro.

It should look a little something like this:

Looks delish, no? Serve it with some tortilla chips or even better, this corn bread. You’re welcome. :)
