A few years ago I shared our cheap Walmart Meal Plan and it was a hit. I received a lot of comments from people asking me to share more cheap and easy meal ideas so that’s what I intend to do. Today I’m sharing a family favorite, White Chicken Chili.
White Chicken Chili is made mostly with chicken and white beans. It only requires one pot and will be ready in 20 minutes if you follow my recommendation below.
I use a store-bought seasoning mix to save time and effort. It always turns out so yummy and makes this the perfect dish for busy weekdays, and busy moms who want to get in and out of the kitchen fast.
One Pot White Chicken Chili Ingredients
- 1 McCormick Seasoning Packet – This brand is my favorite! The McCormick White Chicken Chili Seasoning Mix tastes like your chili’s been cooking on the stove all day without artificial flavors, so you’re saving a ton of time and effort.
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into ½ inch cubes – you can substitute with boneless, skinless chicken thighs or chicken tenderloin to save money.
- 1 cup water
- 1 15oz can of white beans, undrained – Traditionally, White Chicken Chili is made with Cannellini beans, but I always use Great Northern beans.
- Toppings of your choice – our favorites are sour cream, fresh cilantro, avocado, and tortilla chips.
This will feed a family of four. If you’re feeding a family of more than four, like I am, you can just double all the ingredients.
How to Make Stovetop White Chicken Chili In 20 Minutes
Heat oil in a large skillet or pot over medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until no longer pink.
Stir in Seasoning Mix, water, and beans. If you’re doubling the ingredients and don’t want your chili to be watery, drain the beans first.
Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally.
Serve with toppings, if desired!
I’ve tried making White Chicken Chili from scratch on the stovetop, in my slow cooker, but I keep going back to using the McCormick White Chicken Chili Seasoning Mix and recipe.
I love it because it’s quick, fail-proof, and tastes so good that everyone thinks it’s homemade. It’s an easy dinner idea that I rotate on our dinner menu because it’s a meal we all love!
