How to make this chicken chili in the slow cooker
This is a super simple meal to make! Like all great slow cooker recipes, its mainly just tossing stuff in the slow cooker and letting it do the work for you! For the full set of directions, please make sure to scroll down to the recipe card below, but here is a brief overview of how to make it:
- Into the liner of the slow cooker, add the chicken, green chilies, rinsed beans, minced shallots, spices, garlic, lime juice and broth.
- Secure the lid and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
- 30 minutes before serving, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and place on a platter.
- Mix the flour and milk into a paste and add it, along with the corn, into the slow cooker and stir to combine.
- Shred the chicken with a fork and return to the slow cooker for an additional 30 minutes.
- Serve with toppings.
Tips for a great chili:
Using chicken thighs is best, as chicken breasts don’t have enough fat on them and can become overdone and dry when cooked in the slow cooker.
How to serve this:
This chili is so great on a crisp and cool fall night, but it really tastes great all year round, too! I like placing all the toppings on the table family style and allowing everyone to top their own bowl, that way they get exactly what they want.
Try serving it with a variety of toppings, like:
- tortilla chips
- sliced jalapenos
- sour cream
- shredded cheese
- green onions
- anything else you want!
Serve it beside a nice slice of sourdough cornbread, too!
This recipe is easy to swap out and change up!
- Use leftover turkey from thanksgiving or smoked pulled pork (with a dry rub and no sauce) instead of chicken.
- For a spicier chili, you can add jalapeños, hatch chili peppers, or other peppers you enjoy.
- Add some corn for a fun twist with a subtle sweetness!
