White Chili with Chicken

  • ½ pound white beans 

  • cooking spray 

  • 1 tablespoon good quality olive oil 

  • 1½ cups chopped onions 

  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic 

  • 4 cups chicken stock, nonfat, low-sodium 

  • 1 pound chicken breast meat, cut into 1-inch cubes 

  • ½ cup prepared salsa verde (from a jar) 

  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin 

  • 1 teaspoon oregano 

  • ¾ teaspoon coriander 

  • ½-¾ teaspoon kosher salt 

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper 

  • 1½ jalapeño peppers, cored, seeded and minced (optional) 

  • 1 cup cut white or yellow corn, (thawed if frozen) 

  • 8 lime wedges


  1. Pick over beans and discard any stones or bits of dirt. Soak beans overnight (8 hours) in water to cover by 3 inches. Drain and rinse. 

  2. Lightly coat the interior of the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker with cooking spray. 

  3. Heat oil in a Cuisinart® 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes; transfer to pot. 

  4. Place stock, beans and chicken in slow cooker. Add salsa, cumin, oregano, coriander, salt, pepper and jalapeños. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 6 hours and press Simmer; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. 

  5. One half hour before serving, turn heat to High; stir in corn. Serve with wedge of lime. 

Hint: Sliced or diced avocado makes a good garnish for White Chicken Chili.
