One of my most popular recipes on the blog is this white chicken chili from a few years back. I haven’t made it in a really long time, but as I was looking through old posts, I came upon it and remembered how much I loved it!

I adapted the original recipe a bit here for the Instant Pot. I know some people don’t get the appeal of the Instant Pot, but it has truly become my favorite appliance in the kitchen. I love that I can get home at 5 with no plans for dinner and have dinner ready within the hour with minimal prep ans hands on time, and I can even use mostly frozen chicken breasts. This is perfect for me because I sometimes get pretty caught up at work and will get home with no plan for dinner. The IP has made life a lot easier! I have adapted all of my favorite slow cooker recipes and haven’t pulled out my slow cooker since July. So, if you don’t have one, try to snag one this holiday season! And, no, this is not sponsored post for the Instant Pot, I’m just a fan and you guys know I’m all about finding ways to get delicious and nutritious dinners on the table as quickly and as easily as possible. But, if you don’t have one and want to make this chili, fear not, you can also make it in your slow cooker and I’ve provided the directions for both below.

This recipe couldn’t be easier. I just toss in some sliced chicken breasts, beans, corn, broth, and a bunch of seasonings and I’ve got dinner ready in a snap! I used navy beans, but if you want to try other beans like cannelini or pinto beans, that is just fine too!
