Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili with Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

I'm running late to pick up my girls from school (of course!), so here's the fastest you're-really-gonna-love-this-recipe post you'll ever see:


Make this.

It's delicious.

Easy too because Mrs. Potts does all the work for you.

What more encouragement do you need? 😉



Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 small cans chopped green chile peppers (I used mild)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast
  • 3 15 oz. cans white beans
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Place onion, garlic, chicken, chicken broth, beans and chile peppers in crock pot.
  2. Cook for 6-8 hours on low, or 3-4 hours on high.
  3. After cooking, remove chicken breasts from slow cooker and shred meat.
  4. Return meat to slow cooker, and add in cumin, oregano and cayenne pepper. Let cook an additional 15-20 minutes.
  5. Stir in Monterey Jack cheese, stirring until melted.
  6. Serve with an extra sprinkle of cheese, and sour cream if desired.
  7. (If you feel like it needs a little more flavor, add in a seasoning packet of McCormick White Chicken Chili at the end of the day)

  1. Jalie Trowbridg says

    Do you recommend draining and rinsing the beans before adding in the crock pot?

    • You know, I always drain and rinse red beans, but for whatever reason haven’t done that with white beans before Jalie! But, there’s no reason not too, so I’m sure it would be fine. (Thanks for pointing that out – I probably will drain and rinse mine next time!)

  2. I want to make this but use shredded rotiserie chicken that i already cooked up in the crock pot yesterday. Can I do that? And when should I add tbe chicken since its already cooked?

    • I think you can do that without any problem Jessica! I would probably leave the chicken out until the last hour or two? You may have to adjust the seasonings a bit but I think that would work fine. (Let me know!)

    I make a variation of this that I got from one of the ladies at our church with 6 cans of white beans (drained and rinsed) , 2 large cans of chicken breast (drained), 2 jars salsa (i mild, 1-medium) and 1# cubed monterey jack cheese…mix it all together and cook for 3-1/2 – 4 hours on high….yummy and quick!

    Sorry if I'm overlooking this, but about how many servings/cups does this make? Can't wait to make for a football party!
