Easy Low-Carb White Chicken Chili Recipe

This Low-Carb White Chicken Chili has such nice flavor and a bit of a kick, so it really satisfies your appetite, especially when you’re watching your carbs. Also, the healthy chicken stock and other healthy ingredients make it super nutritious! My kids even ate it, but they pick around the beans. They love the cheese sprinkled on the top.

There are some carbs in this from the beans, but I believe it is only a small amount because the fiber in the beans lowers the net carbs. Someone feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

If you make it a little different, let me know, I always love playing with recipes. This one is from 3 different friend’s recipes, all mixed and matched – that’s the way this one is, just use what sounds good to you.

Low-Carb White Chicken Chili

Low-Carb White Chicken Chili

  • About 2#’s chicken, cut in pieces – cooked or uncooked
  • About 4 c. chicken stock (I boil bones now and then and keep stock in the freezer to pull out when I need it.)
  • 1 48 oz. jar Great Northern beans, don’t drain
  • Can of organic tomatoes with green chilis (I use a couple cans)
  • 2 t. ground cumin
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1/2 t. oregano
  • 1/4 t. cayenne pepper if you like it spicy
  • Half or whole onion, chopped (however much you like)
  • A few cloves of minced garlic (again, to your taste)
  • Shredded cheese for the top, we use Monterey Jack or organic cheddar

Simmer all ingredients over low heat for an hour or two. When serving, sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese on the top of each bowl.

Sick of planning meals and answering the question, “What am I going to feed these people?” No matter what kind of eater you are… Check out these affordable interactive easy-to-use meal plans where the work is done for you! Also read over my review to see what I thought of it.


  1. I am making my own version of this tonight and will share a recipe next week as I currently have a recipe backlog I need to get through. I’ll be making mine in the slow cooker, though.

  2. Oh my, I just realized I posted the same kind of recipe you did for the carnival! I guess everyone’s feeling like comfort food lately. Yours sounds yummy, too!

  3. Shannon, can’t wait to compare recipes. Love the idea of making it in the crock-pot.
    Stacey, yes this is a favorite for many!


  4. I made the chili Saturday, and was amazed – even our ‘anti-bean’ dd loved it! For the family members not limiting carbs, I added blue corn chips in keeping with the chili theme.

  5. Jeanne, love the brown rice idea.

    Violet, even I have always been fairly “anti-bean”, but love them in this! OK, maybe I don’t LOVE them, but I don’t mind them. I think it’s because it’s not those nasty mushy icky kidney beans like in regular chili.

  6. Great recipe Kelly! I love all those wonderful spices.
    I will try this but skip the beans, not because I’m avoiding the carb count or because of dietary dogma. I love beans, they just don’t love me back. LOL

    About the carb count, it’s not that bad if it’s a soup. If someone was eating them as a protein source I think it would be a poor choice. I like to look at the carb to protein ratio of foods. For example, a hamburger is a better choice than a pizza because of the ratio. You get more protein for less carbs. But, you probably know all of this already! 😉
