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."
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.

desiree90266 7m agoI made this for the Chili Contest at my son's preschool. There were 26 other entries, some with sides of fresh cooked bacon, cheddar cheese, scallions, and crackers. I paired this with just a side of honey cornbread muffins and guess who won FIRST PLACE? I did!! I have been third place for the past two years. My son graduates to Kindergarten this year so this was my year to win! Woohoo! I tweaked a little by adding more garlic, less spices, and a bit more beans and chicken. My older son who has never wanted to try any of my previous attempts at chili had FOUR bowls of this!! So all in all, I would say this is my go to, absolute favorite, award winning chili recipe from this pint in! Thanks for sharing!
desiree90266 8m agoI made this for the Chili Cook Off at my son's preschool. And guess what? FIRST PLACE!!! I've been vying for first place for two years, always getting third place. Victory is sweet, my friends. Or should I say victory is Chicken Chili? I did as directed in the recipe with these exceptions: 1) used only one chopped jalapeño, 2) used eight cans of beans (following the 12 servings recipe) and 3) used five cloves of garlic. Amazing. My son ate the whole bowl and in three years of trying to find the right chili recipe, he finally ate this one. I knew right then and there, this was a winner!!
Saraboysen 9m agoI used leftover chicken breasts and so even without the taco seasoning this had great flavor!
sijcat3 9m agoI have been searching for a really good white chicken chili recipe- and THIS IS THE BEST EVER! I did not bake the chicken- I put it in a microwave-safe bowl, covered it with water and a tsp of Kosher salt and boiled it off. After cubing the chicken I prepared the chili per the recipe. WOW! Awesome! I will, however, use 1/2 the spice as called for next time and let those who want to burn their mouths add their own chili sauce and extra cumin! Other than the heat being a bit too strong for this 50+ year old tummy- this IS THE BEST white chicken chili recipe EVER!

TonjaZ 1y agoThis White Chicken Chili is a favorite for us. Especially with the cold winters it warms you all the way through. The heat was just right and I loved the thickness. Thanks for sharing.
Gmkdesigns 1y agoGreat recipe. Will make again and freeze in batches.
12chica29 1y agoNot bad. Too rich and too spicy for my taste, which is why I only gave three stars. I would make again but use half the ingredients next time.
lovableangeldoll 1y agoThis was so delicious and now one of my favs
