a la crock pot!
Today is one of those days that I wish I had my crock pot going with a dish like this! It’s a rainy, cold day, and nothing tastes better than a bowlful of comfort food, right? Instead, I’m sitting here writing and enjoying a warmed up Jason’s Deli chicken pasta that isn’t half as tasty! But with that little intro…as promised, here’s our first recipe for our “All it’s crocked up to be” cooking series! WHITE CHICKEN CHILI that is a.k.a. deliciousness in a bowl!
This is our first out of five delicious meals that you can prepare in the crock pot. You can refer back to my grocery list on the previous post. I made it simple enough that if you just want to prepare one or two recipes vs all of them, you can just select the main ingredients from the list! The other ingredients (if not listed), are some that you will probably have handy in your pantry, fridge, or kitchen. Let’s get cookin’!
First…some simple food prepping and helpful tips that will certainly keep you in awe of how easy but delicious this whole crock pot cooking experience will be!
If you buy a rotisserie chicken at your local market, just de-bone and you’re set. It’s so much easier. If it’s more than 2 cups of shredded chicken, you can freeze the rest and use in the Chicken Spaghetti recipe later in this series of crock pot meals! I gather all the spices and mix them up in a small prep dish before sprinkling it on the chicken. A great tip—use those wonderful crock pot liners cause they’ll make your clean up super simple! You can buy several at a great price on Amazon.
What you’ll love about this white chicken chili other than it’s the bomb, leftovers if you have any, they freeze very well. It has a great balance of flavor but feel free to make modifications based on your taste buds. It is hearty and filling and even non-bean lovers will fall in love with it! Trust me, my friend Nova has never liked beans her whole life and while she was hesitant to give this dish a try—I have to tell you she had more than one bowl 😉
Next series post my friends, will be a hearty and delicious TACO SOUP! Stay tuned~
