  1. Yum! Yum! That soup looks divine…how I love white chicken chili. I’m with you…Five Heart Home is one of my favorite contributors too…can always count on her recipes to grab our attention. =) Thanks for sharing another fabulous way to enjoy chicken.

  2. I make this same white bean and chicken chili but without a lot of the prep work. I put boneless, skinless chicken breasts STILL FROZEN and WHOLE in the crock pot along with all the other ingredients. After 8 hours in the crock pot the meat is long ago thawed and cooked through. I simply remove the chicken at the end of the 8 hours, shred it with two forks, return the shredded meat to the crock pot, stir it to mix it with the other ingredients and serve. None of that tedious prep work with the meat before even starting the crock pot!

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
