White Chicken Chili Recipe

This white chicken chili recipe is made in your instant pot. Just set it and let it do it’s thing so you have an easy dinner ready when you are!

I replaced my crock pot with the instant pot last year and have been so happy about this decision. At the time, I didn’t know much about the instant pot except that it had a sauté feature which would allow me to sauté items in the instant pot before adding in the rest of the ingredients. This meant, one less dish to wash, so I was immediately sold! Since then, I have been learning so many other cool features and recipes.

My evenings are pretty busy with driving the girls to their different activities so I am not here to cook most days.  I absolutely love this lifestyle and watching Olivia and Abigail explore different hobbies they are interested in, but it does make for a hectic dinner prep time.

Anything that can be thrown into a crock pot or instant pot and ready when we get home is super helpful!

If I don’t have something already prepared or cooking on our busy days, we end up driving through for fast food.  We have done this more times than I would like to admit, so it’s time to use this wonderful instant pot a little more!

If you don’t have an instant pot, you can get it here.  This is the updated version of the one I use, which allows you to adjust the manual settings a little easier.

Cut your chicken into bite-size pieces and place in the instant pot.

Rinse and drain beans, add to the instant pot.

Add all other ingredients except the cream cheese and optional garnish ingredients.  Do not drain corn or chilies.

Simmer in slow cooker for 5 hours on low or 3 hours on high.
* If you are using an instant pot, you also have the choice to cook manually on high for 15 minutes.  I usually use the slow cook version for this so it is ready for us when we get home.

Before serving, microwave the cream cheese for 60 seconds to melt.  Add to the instant pot and stir well.

Serve with your favorite garnishes such as: shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped tomatoes, green onions or tortilla chips.
