Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili

However, traditional chili with red beans, tomato sauce and ground beef has never been my favorite way to eat chili.

It’s just not totally my thing.

Therefore, I opted to make this easy white chicken chili recipe instead.

Ingredients

So I dug through my recipe box to see if I already had any white chicken chili recipes on hand.

Lo and behold, I found a great recipe for this healthy chili recipe from an old issue of Prevention Magazine.

Use a Large Stockpot

Items You’ll Need To Make WW White Chicken Chili

To make this delicious dinner recipe, you’ll need:

  • Large Stockpot – This T-fal 12 quart stockpot gets great reviews on Amazon and is very reasonably priced.
  • Large Heavy Duty Stirring Spoon – These stainless steel spoons from Amazon are made by OXO Grips and are up for the job of mixing a good hearty soup like this White Chicken Chili.
  • Good set of Kitchen Knives – You’ll need a good knife for cutting up the chicken and onions. This set from Amazon is rated very highly and is a great price. It has a chef knife, carving knife, bread knife, utility knife, and a paring knife.

How To Make White Chicken Chili

Here are the incredibly easy steps for making this heart warming recipe.

Step 1: Sauté Onions & Garlic

In a large soup pot, stockpot or Dutch oven, sauté your chopped onion and minced garlic in olive oil over medium heat until onions are transparent.

Step 2: Add Chicken

Then add your chicken pieces and brown them for approximately 5 minutes.

Step 3: Add Remaining Ingredients

After that, stir in all of your remaining ingredients and stir well.

Step 4: Cover and Simmer

Then, just cover your large pot or Dutch oven and keep chili at a simmer on your stove top for approximately 45 minutes.

What To Serve With White Chicken Chili

Some of my favorite chili toppings are:

  • Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh Jalapenos
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Green Salsa
  • Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • Chopped Green Onion

Another way to prepare this recipe, which I might do next time, is to slow cook it all day.

The Prevention Magazine (Amazon) recipe instructed to transfer everything to a slow cooker or crock pot (Amazon) and cook it on low for 4 to 6 hours.

Then, uncover it and cook it for an additional hour.

Because I was short on cook time, I just covered it and simmered it on the stove for about 40 minutes or so.

How To Store White Chicken Chili

To store your leftovers, allow your chili to cool to room temperature.

Then, pour it into an airtight container with an airtight lid.

After that, place it in your refrigerator for up to 5 days.

The Verdict

Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili - 5 Points Plus Value

It was delicious!

Happily, my husband loves it.

Also, since my son is uber picky, I just place some chunks of chicken on a sectioned plate and serve it to him with a side of broccoli and noodles.

Thankfully, he eats it up!
