Easy White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

Brr, its cold out there!  

This arctic blast has me bundling up and (gasp) turning up the heat! (I may at one point have second guessed my shearling boot purchase, but not today!)  I am so glad I have all the ingredients needed for this quick and easy White Bean Chicken Chili recipe for tonight…

Do I have to use precooked chicken in this recipe?

Of course not!

To have this white bean chili ready in 20 minutes, I use precooked chicken, but you could easily brown bite-sized pieces of chicken breasts. By cutting the raw chicken into bite sized pieces, your extra cook time will only be about five additional minutes.  (Are you looking for more quick and easy recipes? Well, you are in luck, because I have an entire category dedicated to quick and easy recipes!)

We love This Easy Chicken Chili Recipe

The flavors of the chicken, white beans, corn, chilies, spices and tortillas blend together and taste like the chili simmered for hours!  My family loved this dish, so be sure to give it a try!
