Ingredients to Season and Saute Chicken

  • 1.25 lb Ground Chicken
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Ingredients to add to the Slow Cooker

  • Seasoned Chicken with onion and garlic
  • 16 oz Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups White Beans (I use Great Northern Beans & Pinto Beans)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 8 oz diced green chiles
  • 2 Celery Stalks Chopped
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 16 oz canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 Jalapenos, diced
  • 1 Habanero, minced (optional)
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika


  • In a skillet over medium heat, add onion, garlic, and oil. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the ground chicken and seasonings. Saute for 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the seasoned ground chicken, and remaining ingredients into a 6-quart or larger sized slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Once the chili is finished, serve into bowls and top with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and then add any of your favorite toppings! Enjoy!


  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • I use canned beans in this recipe. Make sure to rinse and drain first. You can also use presoaked beans in this recipe.
