Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Chili

On Sunday, it happened.  It’s officially fall.

To celebrate the change of season, I filled my crockpot with the most delicious ingredients.  That’s another thing I love about fall… crockpot cooking.  That amazing, slow cooked goodness that is warm and satisfying as the weather gets cold… Yum!

Once the slow cooker began to percolate, I took off for yoga class.  Check out my studio.  Isn’t it the most gorgeous place?

We had the most amazingly grounding practice, the kind that gets you ready for a change of  season.

Whenever there’s a new season, you have a chance to start over.  A chance to renew and define.  I could not be more excited about moving into this new season… and all that lies ahead.

When I arrived home, my dinner was ready to go, and did it ever look incredible.

As is usual, I modified the original recipe ever so slightly, adding a little broth to thin it out and some onion, and leaving out the black beans.  Of course, add those beans if they suit your fancy!  The soup was AWESOME, and the perfect dish to kick off the fall season!

1 can corn, undrained

1 can Rotel, undrained

½ cup fat-free chicken broth

½ cup diced onion

1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix

1 tsp. onion powder

1 8 oz. package light cream cheese

2 4 oz. chicken breasts

red pepper, diced

cherry tomatoes, sliced

INSTRUCTIONS
1.  Place chicken at bottom of the crockpot, sprayed with cooking spray to make it easier to clean after.  Note:  I added the chicken breasts frozen and didn’t even bother to defrost them.  My favorite part about slow cooking… you can do this!

    This looks so good, I can’t wait to try it! Do you have a large or a small crock pot? Mine is only 2 qts so I’m wondering if I would have to halve the recipe. Thanks!!

  5. I think mine is a 4 quart. It’s not the big oval, but it’s the taller round one. Hope this helps!

    I have almost the same exact recipe and made it on Sunday! I don’t put any broth in mine though, but I do use frozen chicken breasts. I eat mine over brown rice. Yum!

      I improvised and added the broth to thin it out a little bit! I bet it would super thick without it… is it?

      • Beverly says:

        I had to check your recipe again to see if you added the corn undrained, which you did. I noticed too that my recipe has black beans as well. I don’t think mine is very thick, but you could definitely eat it just fine with a fork! I am actually have leftovers today for lunch. :)

  7. Lisa says:

      Kari – Let me know what you think! I loved it, and was almost sad that I was eating my last serving today. I’m going to have to make it again soon!

  10. This is the best chili I’ve ever had! My hubby and I absolutely loved it. I shared this recipe with lots of friends!
