Instructions

Crockpot Instructions:

  • Chop onions and garlic. (Optional: you can sauté in 1 teaspoon of olive oil for 2 minutes before adding to the crockpot.)
  • Lay chicken breasts along the bottom of the crockpot.
  • Cover chicken with onions, garlic, green chiles, broth and spices.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
  • After 6 hours, shred chicken breasts. You can shred them right in the crockpot with two forks or remove from the pan and pull apart on a cutting board. The chicken will be tender enough that it falls apart. Stir the chicken in with the other ingredients. Add cannellini beans and frozen corn.
  • Optional if you have time: Allow the chicken to sit for an additional 10-20 minutes after shredding the chicken. The chicken will absorb some of the liquid and thicken the chili.
  • Garnish with avocado or guacamole + enjoy!
