I’m always down for eating something warm and hearty!
In addition, the fact that it’s healthy too makes this delicious recipe all the more alluring!
Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili
However, I’m just not a big fan of the traditional chili with red beans, tomato sauce and ground beef.
It’s just not totally my thing.
Therefore, I opted to make white chicken chili instead.
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 one that I had ripped out of a November 2008 issue of Prevention Magazine.
Find a Good Stockpot
To make this Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili, you’ll need a good quality stockpot.
Naturally, I went to Amazon and found a really nice Cuisinart stockpot.
Based on 576 reviews as of this update, this pot has 4 1/2 stars: Cuisinart 766-26 Chef’s Classic 12-Quart Stockpot with Cover
Only 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus Value

Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili Recipe
So, without further ado, here is the recipe of Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili.
Weight Watchers White Chicken Chili – 5 Points Plus Value
- - 2 onions chopped
- - 2 cloves garlic minced
- - 1 Tbsp olive oil
- - 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
- - 4 cans 15.5 oz each cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- - 2 cans 14 oz each fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
- - 1 can 4.5 oz chopped green chile peppers
- - 1 tsp each salt and cumin
- - 3/4 tsp dried oregano
- - 1/2 tsp each chili powder and ground black pepper
- - 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- - 1/8 tsp ground red pepper
- Saute onions and garlic in oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and cover.
- Let simmer for about 45 minutes.
Although the Prevention Magazine recipe instructed to transfer everything to a slow cooker and cook it on low for 4 to 6 hours and then uncover it and cook it for an additional hour, I didn’t do that.
Because I was short on time, I just covered it and simmered it for about 40 minutes or so.
It was delicious!
Happily, my husband loved it.
Since my son is uber picky, I picked out some chunks of chicken for him and served him the chicken with a side of broccoli and noodles, on a sectioned plate.
Thankfully, he ate it up!
The aroma smelled up the entire house.
That, along with some hot french bread, was exactly what our home needed on a cold, wet, football Sunday.
Now if the Redskins could get their act together and start winning some football games, our Sundays would be just right and I’d be a happy cook!
