I have won several chili cook-offs with this recipe. It is always a crowd pleaser!
"Wow! My husband asked me to make a white chicken chili and I selected this one. He was working so I ate it for dinner by myself. When he called to ask if it turned out OK I had to admit I'd eaten 3 bowls! It's that good. We took the rest to a tailgate party and our friends were all raving about it too. I used ground chicken rather than roasted just to save some time. I'm taking it to our chili cook off at work this week."- cheryloakesforster

Top-ranked recipe named "Award Winning White Chicken Chili"
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken with taco seasoning and poultry seasoning. Bake about 30-45 minutes. Dice and reserve.
Melt butter and saute onion, garlic and jalapenos until the onions are translucent. Drain and rinse beans and add to sauteed mixture, cooking for 5 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin and flour, stirring 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, half and half, salt, white pepper, hot sauce and Worchestershire sauce, cooking until mixture is thickened and beans are soft. Add diced chicken and cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
This makes a lot of chili so make sure to use a very large pot. I usually use a very large Dutch oven. The leftovers are great to freeze and use again later!
For thicker chili, smash some of the beans up against the side of the pot once they have had a chance to soften.

snake27 11 month agoI split this in half and boiled the chicken then shredded, sautéed the onions, jalapeño and garlic. Then put all in a crock pot for 3 hrs. Served with tortilla chips! This came out great!! The Neighbors loved it as we'll as the wife. Chicken chili cook off winner for sure!!!
Mrsswill 1 year agoI cut this recipe in half, and I only had 14oz of half and half on hand so I added a total of 4 tbsps of gluten free flour to it. I also used cubed up turkey roast cooked as the chicken should have been. Plus, i used mccormicks chicken taco spice mix and since it already had cumin, i halved the amt. My husband said 'wow! This stuff is amazing!' Lol! Guess u could say it was a hit. Thanks for posting.

Susantarheel 1 year agoI tried making this soup in a crockpot. It tasted good but I didn't like the texture. Next time I'll try it as the recipe calls and hope to get a better result.

swibirun 1 year agoMade it with just a few substitutions (thighs instead of breasts, used a green chili rub instead of taco seasoning, and used 2 cans of black beans instead of all white beans). Family loved it.
Love7721 1 year agoTHIS WAS PHENOMENAL!!. I mixed the taco and poultry seasoning in a bowl and dredged the chicken in it and then set it in the oven to back for the 45 minutes. While that was baking I put together the rest. I was a little nervous that it wouldn't all fit in my pot, but it did. My pic is of the green cast iron pot. I think it should be said that after you put the chicken stock in you scrape the bottom of the pot to get all the good stuff up. I had to do that several times. I used 3 jalapenos, one whole (seeds and membrane) and the other two I scraped out. I didn't want to have to take anyone to the hospital! It had the perfect 'kick' to it. I let the pot simmer while I was cooking the chicken and then rough chopped/shredded the chicken when it was done and added to the pot. I used a finely shredded colby/jack cheese (which I find melts more evenly). I sprinkled some in and stirred until it was melted and then sprinkled some more in and repeated. I think that should be said because I know if you just dump all the cheese in, you might have a big all cheesey mess. I made some of the super sweet cornbread that matthew-182 posted and it was just fabulous!!!! Thank you. I will be entering this in my works chili cook off next month....
