First, dig out your Crock-Pot. (If you don’t have one, get out a large stock pot.)  After that, it’s pretty much dump the ingredients and go!



  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3-4 diced tomatillos (or 16 oz tomatillo salsa)
  • 1 lg. sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1- 32 oz. container low sodium chicken broth
  • 1- 4 oz. can diced green chiles
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1- 1.25 oz. package of white chicken chili seasoning mix
  • 2- 16 oz. cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2- 15.5 oz. cans navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Garnish suggestions: cilantro, avocado, low-fat Mexican cheese, plain Greek yogurt, finely chopped onion, green onions.



  1. Add chicken breasts to bottom of your slow cooker and top with the diced tomatillos (or salsa). Then add in all of the remaining ingredients (except garnish ideas) and gently stir.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.
  3. Remove the chicken and transfer to large mixing bowl, shred, then return to slow cooker. (Or you can shred in your slow cooker; it should be tender enough that it just falls apart when you stir!).
  4. Stir and add pepper to taste if desired. Serve in a bowl, add optional garnishes, and enjoy!



  • Feel free to add more veggies as desired. Pro-tip: Mushrooms make an awesome addition!
  • If you’re vegetarian, make using vegetable broth and tofu
  • Can’t find white chili seasoning mix? Try this: Mix together 2 tsp. cumin, ½ tsp. paprika, ½ tsp. chili powder, ½ tsp. oregano, ½ tsp. coriander, ½ tsp. cayenne, salt and pepper to taste.
