White Bean Chicken Chili is a nice change from traditional tomato-based chili once in a while. And it’s a snap to make!
I really don’t make this often enough! It’s a great combination of protein and fiber, plus this chicken chili is easier on those tummies who don’t handle tomatoes and green peppers as well.

Simple, healthy & fast…it doesn’t get any better than that!  There is no added fat, dairy, or gluten. Even yeast-free diets can enjoy a bowl of this delicious chili.

A perfect meal for a busy night or when you have leftover chicken. You could even substitute in turkey after the holidays!

I served this chili with some fresh homemade cornbread.
