Chicken Cream Cheese Chili: A Video Recipe

This Chicken Cream Cheese Chili is so easy! I love a good one-pot meal. You basically toss everything into a slow cooker and let it be for half the day.

This white chicken chili is so easy! I love a good one-pot meal. You basically toss everything into a slow cooker and let it be for half the day. It takes minimal effort and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser!

My co-worker, Amaia, shared this recipe with me after bringing it to a potluck. Thanks Amaia; it was well-loved by my husband ;). I hope your takeaway from the video tutorial is how easy this recipe really is!

Ingredients for white chicken chili:

2 chicken breasts (frozen or fresh)
1 (15 oz)can black beans; drained and rinsed (or cook your own beans!)
1 (15 oz) can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 (15 oz) can corn, un-drained
1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, un-drained
1 Tbsp chili powder 1 tsp cumin
1 (o.4 oz) package ranch dressing mix
1/2 bunch of cilantro; chopped
1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth (I used Better than bouillon reduced sodium)
1 (8oz) package cream cheese (regular or reduced fat)

Optional (but highly recommended) garnish:

Mixed Mexican cheese, sour cream and chives

Chicken Chili

The How To (please watch the video for the visual tutorial):

Place everything into the slow cooker in the order that it’s listed above:
1. Place 2 chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot.

2. Drain and rinse (rinse until water runs clear) black and white beans; then add them to the pot. P.S. We’re now cooking our own beans to reduce the amount of BPA in our diet. Click here to learn how to easily make your own beans.Β 

3. Add finely chopped medium onion, un-drained can of corn, un-drained can of diced tomatoes with green chilies

4. Top with 1 Tbsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 package ranch dressing mix, 1/2 bunch of chopped cilantro, 1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth (I used 1 cup and it does thicken up as it stands; especially after being refrigerated) and finally place your 8 oz package of cream cheese in the center.

5. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. After it’s been cooking 5 hours, break up the cream cheese into the rest of the mix. Cover and continue cooking the last hour (if you forget this step, it won’t hurt anything to mix it at the end).

6. After the 6 hours, remove the chicken breasts into a medium bowl and shred using two forks. The chicken is so tender it just falls apart. Place the chicken back into the slow cooker and stir to combine everything.

Amaia served this over baked potatoes topped with cheese and sour cream. It’s also great with tortilla chips or white rice.

    Natasha John from Australia here again. I have searched all the supermarkets for the Ranch mix without success. They do have Paul Newmans made up Ranch dressing Can I use this and if so how much? Can you suggest a pkt alternative to use to Ranch if this does not suit?

      May 31, 2018

      Hi John, I honestly haven’t experimented that way so it is difficult to guess. If using ranch, maybe use 1/3 to 1/2 cup and cut back the cream cheese a little. Reply

    Hi Natasha

    I am from Australia and love your recipies. With the 1 0.4 oz package ranch dressing mix for the Chilli chicken what is the Australian equivalent to use. Also with the tomatoes and chilli can I just add chilli flakes and also can I use parsley. Your recipies are wonderful Thank you Reply

      Hi Ali, you could do this on the stovetop but it would require a long cook time over low heat for the chicken to become tender. Bring it to a simmer then reduce the heat to just barely a simmer and cook until chicken is easy to shred with forks. Reply

      I wouldn’t leave it out since it has dairy and chicken in it. Let it cook to room temperature or just slightly warm, then refrigerate and reheat the next day. Reply

  • October 28, 2015

    Hi Natasha,

    I am planning on making this chili for a work chili cook-off contest. I was wondering how your friend brought it in to work.. Did she make it the night before and then just keep it on “warm” all morning? I am trying to figure out which way would be the best way to make this so it still tastes fresh, but so I won’t be shredding chicken in the office lol. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 28, 2015

      If I recall correctly, I think she did shred chicken at work, but you could probably put everything in before going to bed and keep it on warm in the morning before work. If you’re serving it later in the day, I’d be a little concerned about keeping it on warm for a very long time. Reply

  • Jenya

    Hi Natasha, quick question – would it be ok to cook this chili together with potatoes (in one crock pot, at once) or will it become a “mess”? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 1, 2015

      I haven’t tried to combine the two so I can’t really say if it would work, but I don’t think I would recommend that method. I think it’s best to cook the potatoes separately. If you have a second crockpot, you can wrap the potatoes in foil and keep them warm in there after they are baked. Reply

  • Lena

    Question…. Would it be ok to do this without the corn? Would I just leave the water in the beans in that case? also for the ranch seasoning…. Can I just use ranch dressing? Don’t have that kind of seasoning on hand… Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      September 23, 2015

      Sorry I didn’t reply sooner – you can omit the corn and add the white beans with their liquid. Just don’t add the black beans liquid or it will discolor the chili. I haven’t tried with ranch dressing so I’m not sure how it would affect the flavor or texture of the finished chili. Without testing the ranch dressing, I couldn’t really tell you yes or no. Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    Great recipe. I made this overnight (mind you, I had to get up at 6 am to turn it off). It tasted really good. I omitted the chili powder, after reading some comments of families with kids. And it was just right. I like spicy, but this was perfect for the entire family. Even the baby ate corn, beans and tiny pieces of meat from this. I had to actually take down and dust off my slow cooker, now I know its for those type of recipes that I bought it in the first place.

    Beginning to think I must have some Ukraine blood in me, read your sister Svetlana’s slow cooker Pulled Pork recipe and it’s almost like what I make.

    Then I read your Chicken Cream Cheese Chile recipe and it’s almost like a White Chile that I make. Of course I never thought of taking it to a higher level as you have done with the Ranch dressing and Cream Cheese !

    Showed this recipe to my Wife as she loves cream cheese and Chile both, so now I have orders from her to get this cooked up by next week even if is summer in Arizona.

    Hi Natasha
    I cooked this to night and my wife & I loved it. It was so quick to put together and made the house smell so good all afternoon. The only thing I did different was I used a pack of Coscos boneless, skinless chicken thighs, instead of breasts. Thats what I had on hand and I like the dark meat a little better. It had a nice kick of heat but not to much. My wife said to save the recipe. I served it with some good nachos on the side. Yum…. Reply

    First off I want to say I am a BIG fan of this website, you do such a great job, your recipes are always great and your layout of the site is absolutely awesome, thank you so much!

    I tried this recipe last week and it was a big hit, I loved it and so did my husband but my kids unfortunately could not eat it because it was a little spicy for them so perhaps I will omit the chili powder next time. Reply

      You are welcome Angie :). That’s what I will do next time as well so that my 3 year old can eat it. Me and my husband love spicy food, but our son is not there yet :). Reply

    Natasha, I have never used cilantro but when I bought it and started chopping it the smell was unbearable, (I did not like the way it smelled). Can I omit it? I just wonder how it will taste cooked? Also, when I was buying ranch seasoning I could only find 1oz packs so I guess I will use only half a pack… Cant wait to find out how it comes out.! Reply

    • Natasha

      January 21, 2013

      Parsley can be used as alternative to cilantro or you can just omit it. It will still taste great. Just use half of the pack or ranch. Let me know how it will turn out :). Reply

      • Tatyana V
        January 23, 2013

        Natasha, thank you! It came out delicious πŸ™‚ I have a big family so no left overs for me πŸ™ I served it with tortilla chips and it was a big hit. Also, I have used half of a half a bunch of cilantro (since I bought it I thought I might as well try it) and to my great relief I did not taste that horrid smell of a fresh cilantro…. Thank you again! Reply

    Wow you are such a natural, great video! I made this deliciousness a few days ago, we ate it as a soup since we didn’t have chips on hand πŸ™‚ I was wondering if I can make this at work for potluck & 6 hrs would go pass my lunch hour. Can I cook it on high for half the time? Ill defrost the chicken breast the night before to speed up the process. Any tips?!? Thanks alot for your what you do. You rock!!! Reply

    Natasha, this looks very easy & yummy, I ‘d love to see more crock pot recipes on your site, love to walk in on a ready made dinner after a long day at work, & so does my family!! :))))
    P.S. I’m trying to eat clean, so that means avoiding canned foods, do u think I would need to soak fresh beans or can just use dry beans(since they cook for so long) for this recipe? Reply

    Natasha, it’s sooooo good!!!! Very, very delicious:-)
    The only things I ommited were cilantro (not a cilantro lover), and the chilly powder. I have young children….. So, I wanted them.to enjoy this deliciousness as well.

    Natasha thank you for the recipe.. I have made it, followed instructions exactly, however it turned out pretty watery. It was also pretty spicy, I would suggest for those with little kids use maybe the regular caned tomato??? I will defiantly make it again, but use a little less broth.. πŸ™‚ Reply

      You can use 1/2 cup of broth if you want it to be thicker, but it does thicken up quite a bit the next day. I’ll will update the recipe with this note. Reply
