Dairy Free White Chicken Chili

Shredded chicken breast, chicken stock, and Thai Kitchen’s Coconut Milk (my favorite), plus lime and a handful of spices, makes the best white chicken chili I’ve ever had. It’s zesty, creamy, a little spicy, and so so savory good!

The coconut milk is what really sells this soup. I promise, you don’t taste coconut at all. Just a super savory chili. It does help to cut through the spice and broth to create this lightly creamy flavor and consistency.

Healthy White Chicken Chili

This recipe is super simple and easy to make! In a large stock pot, add Extra Virgin Olive Oil (about 2 Tbsps), and your diced veggies- red onion, green bell pepper, de-seeded Jalapeno, fire roasted tomatoes, and shredded carrot.

Saute your veggies up with your spices to really get the flavor going in the pot for a few minutes until they start to brown.

We love using Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning on so many things but especially in this chili. It adds the perfect amount of zest and spice!

Add chicken broth, de-thawed chicken breasts, pinto beans, and 2 bay leaves. Let this cook for one hour until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Then you can take the chicken breasts out and shred on a cutting board using two forks.
