Today’s recipe for White Chili with Chicken is a delicious, original recipe that we developed for Albertsons Supermarket as part of their Cans Get You Cooking program.

When you have a well-stocked pantry with a variety of canned ingredients on hand like beans, chicken stock, peppers and chilies, corn and even potatoes – a nutritious and delicious meal like our White Chili with Chicken comes together in just minutes!

Our white chili has tender chunks of chicken in a light broth that is chock-full of vegetables and beans! Some added fresh bell pepper and onion, plus a wonderful blend of herbs and spices make this white chili with chicken incredibly flavorful! We also topped the chili with a splash of fresh lime juice, some fresh cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream for a creamy, citrusy note that perfectly complements the spicy heat in the chili.

White Chili with Chicken

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces (approximately 2 pounds of bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs will yield 1 pound of useable meat)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ cups diced onion
  • 1 cup diced orange or yellow bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1½ teaspoons cumin
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 14.5-ounce cans chicken stock
  • 1 4.25-ounce can diced green chilies
  • 1 14.5-ounce can white cannellini beans with liquid
  • 1 14.5-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 14.5-ounce can creamed corn
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced potato, drained
  • 2 tablespoons canned diced jalapeño, any stems and seeds removed
  • 1 pint sour cream

  1. Season both sides of chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large heavy bottomed pot, heat oil over high.

  4. Lower heat to medium high and add onions and bell peppers. Cook for two minutes and add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds.
  5. Add chicken back in with any juices that accumulate along with coriander, oregano, cumin, chili powder, bay leaves, cilantro, chicken stock, chilies, white beans, red beans, creamed corn, diced potato and jalapeño.
  6. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  7. Stir in sour cream and heat to hot but not boiling.
  8. Serve with additional sour cream, additional cilantro, tortilla chips or fresh squeezed lime juice.

    I love the lime wedge in there! Would you keep it in there even if there wasnt much heat? does it compliment it nicely anyways? I have been looking for a nice white chili recipe!

      Hi Alice – The lime is completely optional and it can definitely be used even if you don’t make the chili very spicy – it adds a great fresh flavor to the chili either way!
