White Chicken Chili


  • 2 or 3 chicken breasts, cut into 1/2” chunks
  • 1 medium onion, chopped small
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder,
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 2 cans white beans (navy or northern) rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chicken broth, plus extra as needed
  • 2 cans (4 oz) chopped green chilies or 1 and 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 and 1/2 cups plain yogurt

Note: I use full fat plain yogurt rather than sour cream. I find that sour cream often has added ingredients (like chemicals…) eww.

  1. In a large saucepan, saute chicken and onion in the oil on medium high heat, about 5-6 minutes.
  2. Add broth, seasonings, beans and chilies.     *Extra broth can be added at the end if you like.
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to simmer (low or med-low) for 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Add yogurt. Serve.
