Slow cooker. Crock pot. Time saver. 

Whatever you want to call it, I love it!

My DIY hubby and I received one for our wedding 27 years ago, but only recently have I been on a mission to discover even more recipes my family will love. 

I better do it fast. Tim does not like soup in warm weather. No how. No way.

Although we had spring weather last week there’s a chance for a snowy/icy mix today. I’m getting this Slow Cooker Chicken Chili recipe in just before my husband’s cutoff date!

  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can white corn undrained
  • 1 can chili beans undrained
  • 1 can kidney beans undrained
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • minced garlic and cumin to taste
  • 2 tbs chili powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Place all ingredients except sour cream in slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours (or high for 2-3 hours).
  • Before serving remove chicken and shred (or cut into bite sized pieces).
  • Stir in sour cream and return chicken to slow cooker.
  • Garnish with additional sour cream and shredded cheese as desired.


If I don't have canned or frozen chicken broth, I will make mine with one chicken bouillon cube per one cup boiling water.
I didn't drain any of the vegetables.

  1. I am making this tonight!! I am excited and cannot wait to try it. I am subbing the kidney beans for pinto beans it is the perfect dinner for a cold windy night. Oh and I am making this in my pressure cooker so I have to adjust the time a little. 😉

  2. Oh, this looks good! Actually, I’m making your slow cooker rice and beans tonight. 🙂 I love soup in the summer because usually I can make it in my slow cooker and it doesn’t heat up our kitchen like the oven does. Thanks for another great recipe!

    1. Hey, Lisa! I love when someone makes one of my recipes and tells me! This chicken chili is really good and even better if served with the Jiffy cornbread. Enjoy!
