Clean Eating White Bean Chicken Chili – DF, GF

After two very long years and a move from Miami to Orlando, my parents were able to come visit us again! Knowing they were coming on Monday, I wanted to have something ready for dinner after their travels…but needed to work hard to ensure I was free all week. Result: SLOW COOKER.

After giving them a quick tour of our neighborhood and lots of hugs, we headed back to find out if my creation would be suitable for all parties: not too spicy, but good flavor, not too many veggies, but plenty of veggies. It received nods of approval and second helpings all the way around the table {with all our mismatched bowls from my picture shoots, ha!}mumanddadRTTF

Wanting to try something besides my hearty vegetable chili, I settled on white bean chicken chili…but I thought it contained dairy so I had to do some digging to come up with a version that really felt thick and hearty, yet clean! Clean Eating White Bean Chicken ChiliIngredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, raw
  • 1 (16 ounce) can diced no salt added tomatoes {regular or spicy} 
  • 3 (16 ounce) cans Great Northern beans, low sodium and/or organic

  • Sauté onions, pepper, zucchini and garlic until the onions are translucent.
  • All all ingredients to the crockpot {slow cooker}.
  • 4-5 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
  • Remove chicken and shredded
