White Chicken Chili

I make this on meal prep day to have throughout the week. Sometimes I just heat it up in the jar, or add it to a corn tortilla to make it a taco. It's also good as a dip with corn crackers. I used 93% lean ground chicken because I find the extra lean chicken (97% lean) to be too dry. 


Recipe makes about 10 one-cup servings. 

Yield/Servings: 10 Serving Size: 1 cup Total Cook/Prep time: 1.5 hours


  • 2 lbs 93% lean ground chicken
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 3 carrots (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2 cans (15 oz) navy beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 quart fat-free chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp ground cumin
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (to thicken)
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper


Sautee the ground chicken and onions in a stock-pot on low - medium heat until the onions are slightly translucent (about 5 minutes).

Add the broth, carrots, green pepper, ground cumin, chili powder and cornstarch

Mix to thoroughly combine the cornstarch into the broth

Raise the heat to bring it to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer

Simmer 1 hour

Add the beans and the corn during the last 5 minutes of cooking

Optional: Store in jars or containers (in the refrigerator)

Add the chopped fresh cilantro just before serving it

Sprinkle with salt and pepper
