Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Chili
Today was so busy, my goodness! I won’t bore you with the details, but I will tell you that dinner has been cooking as I get other things done! My tummy has started to rumble, smelling this delicious aroma all day!
What can I say about Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Chili? Well, it’s what I like to call a “Dump and Start Recipe.” Not having to precook anything makes this so much faster to get going when you need to get going!
This Crock Pot chicken chili has a lot of flavor, and you don’t even have to chop anything to get that flavor! For this recipe I have made good use of pantry spices to save you some time and effort. This is such a good chili to throw in the slow cooker before you start your busy day!
My readers are always on the lookout for tasty slow cooker recipes that use boneless/skinless chicken breasts. This is a great one because the flavors are so good, and just a little spicy (see the links below for a few of my other slow cooker boneless/skinless chicken breast recipes).
If you want a milder version, skip the Rotel® style tomatoes/chiles and use a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and a 7 oz can of diced mild green chiles. That cuts the spice by a lot, and those who do like a spicier chili can add some nice red hot sauce! That’s what I often do as Paul isn’t into spicy.
You can also use chicken thighs in this chili recipe. They are so rich and tender!
