Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is a recipe I actually first tried from a friend many years ago (full disclosure she didn’t use the slow cooker). She was the first person I’d seen add hominy to her White Chicken Chili and the flavor was AMAZING.

Most people when making chilis stick to the more classic beans and peppers. Yes this chicken chili has white beans and canned diced green chilis, but the super simple addition of the canned hominy is a game changer for this recipe.

The easiest White Chicken Chili you'll ever have in your crock pot.

Tips for the perfect White Chicken Chili:

  • I use chicken thighs because they hold up better in slow cooker cooking. You can certainly use white meat as well if you’d prefer.
  • No prep! There is no prep at all for this recipe, no browning, etc.
  • Secret weapon? Chicken Base! I use Better than Bouillon and the added flavors are AMAZING.
  • If not using a base use chicken stock instead of broth. Buy unsalted so you control the salt levels of your soup.
  • Make this into a slow cooker creamy white chicken chili by adding in cream cheese and sour cream.
  • Top with minced fresh jalapeños for extra brightness and fresh flavors.

Tools used in the making of this Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili:
3 Qt. Slow Cooker: The perfect size for side dishes for 10-12 people, this slow cooker is an absolute bargain and a workhorse.
Chicken Base: I almost never buy boxes of broth because I keep the beef, chicken and vegetable version of this Better Than Bouillon.
Hominy: This sets the chili apart. You can use corn instead but the flavors of the hominy are creamy, earthy and not overly sweet like corn.
Diced Green Chiles: The perfect easy addition will add a lot of flavor, you won’t want to leave these out.

  1. I am somewhat confused about the Slow Cooker White Chicken recipe. Do you use the chicken base in place of the chicken broth, or both?

    Thank you.

    1. You’ll want to use both the broth and the chicken base for this recipe. Use the base to make the broth and then add extra base to pump in more flavor. Hope this clears up any confusion. Enjoy!

  2. Very good but don’t need to salt the chicken if you use the chicken base with your broth. Also used morebeans and added diced jalapeños wild cooking. Added sour cream at the end for a bit of creaminess.
