Keto White Chicken Chili

yield: 8 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 8 HOURS

total time: 8 HOURS 10 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 4 large frozen chicken breasts
  • 2- 10oz. cans of Rotel tomatoes (I used Chili Fixins)
  • 2 cups chicken broth (use 3 cups if using fresh or thawed chicken)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin (add if you use regular Rotel)
  • 1 tsp. chili powder (add if you use regular Rotel)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Toppings (optional):

  • avocado, cut into cubes
  • cilantro, chopped
  • white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • sliced jalapeños

Directions

1

Add frozen chicken breast, Rotel cans, chicken broth, salt, pepper, onion, and garlic to slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours. Stir occasionally, if you can. *Also add in cumin and chili powder if you are using regular cans of Rotel instead of Rotel Chili Fixin's or if you just want a stronger chili flavor. 

2

Remove chicken from the slow cooker and place in a bowl or on a cutting board. Add in heavy cream and cream cheese to the chili mixture and whisk to make sure everything gets mixed together well. Shred chicken with two forks and add the chicken back to the slow cooker.


Note: Cut cream cheese into cubes so that it melts easier. You can easily use a hand mixer or whisk to break it up before adding the chicken back into the slow cooker.

3

Top chili with cilantro, avocado, jalapeño, and shredded cheese if desired. Enjoy!

keto white chicken chili cooked in the Crockpot

Delicious keto comfort food for winter!

This keto white chicken chili is the perfect low-carb version of the classic carb-heavy chili that is so rich, creamy, and full of flavor. I love that I can just throw all of the ingredients in my Crockpot and have a delicious keto-friendly dinner ready in a few hours with little effort. No need to spend a ton of time in the kitchen!

I always serve up this keto white chicken chili on the weekend because it’s great to grab a bowl to chow down on while we’re watching football. You can even turn it into a dip, and dunk in some cheese crisps or use it as a base for keto nachos! YUMMO!

Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making this keto white chicken chili:

  • I used Rotel Chili Fixin’s, but you can use the original Rotel can and just add 1 teaspoon of chili powder and 1 teaspoon of cumin if you can not find the all in one can.
  • Since we can’t use beans like a traditional chili, you can add in cauliflower rice at the very end if you’d like to make it even heartier. Avoid adding it in during the whole cooking process because it will become mushy.
  • I used frozen chicken breasts which means you can reduce some of the chicken broth as I did. If you are using fresh chicken breasts, add in 3 cups of chicken broth.

Low carb goodness in a bowl!

This keto white chicken chili recipe is so flavorful that you won’t even miss the beans. I made an extra batch to share with my neighbor and she didn’t know it was low carb until I told her when she asked for the recipe. It’s sure to be a real crowd pleaser and it’s not super spicy so it’s something everyone can enjoy.

Want to save time?

Grab a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken! I love to grab one when I’m at Sam’s or Costco and they’re always so tender and juicy, providing the perfect shreds of chicken for this recipe. Not only are they a great time saver for this chili, but you can’t beat the price as they are typically under $6.

My Sam’s Club and Costco also both sell packs of pre-cooked rotisserie chicken breasts that have already been deboned. That really saves so much time, and if you’re a fan of white meat then it’s even better!

If you are using pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, I recommend 4 cups for this chili recipe.

My Hip sidekick, Jenna, tried out this recipe and here’s what she thought!

“This keto white chicken chili smelled so good from the moment it started cooking! I love how easy it was to throw everything together, and with the cans of Rotel, there wasn’t a whole lot of prep other than opening the cans. The flavor is awesome, and I am definitely going to make it for my family again. Plus, it reheated beautifully the next day.”

    Super delicious but super spicy! Next time I’m going to do one can regular Rotel and the other chili one. We did add the cauliflower rice so good this will be on our rotation for sure!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! Thanks for letting us know what you thought of it, Kyle!

  2. tiffany

    We loved this, thank you!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad to hear that! Thanks for the feedback, tiffany!

  3. Gail J.

    Great recipe! Made this for the 3 of us, but ended up not sharing. Sooooo good. Will share next time – I promise. Only change I made was I used chicken thighs as that was what I had (removed skin when cooked) and still awesome.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! I’m so glad you loved it, Gail J! Thanks for the feedback!

  4. Kristi

    This is so good! I saved time by using four 12.5 oz cans of drained chicken and cooked it on the stove instead of slow cooked. Also did one can or regular rotel and one chili rotel. It still had a bunch of kick! Thanks for sharing!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sounds delicious, Kristi! Thanks for coming back to share how yours turned out!

  5. Jenny

    If I am using fresh chicken breasts, how long should I cook this for? I can’t wait to try it.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jenny! If using fresh chicken, you could do up to 4 hours give or take, depending on your brand of slow cooker as some may cook a bit differently. Also, be sure to add in 3 cups of chicken broth when not using frozen chicken, as noted above. Hoping this helps!

  6. Lydia

    No Rotel Chili Fixins near me so I used the spices but added a little more (I like it seasoned & SPICY!). As usual, I made this keto recipe for myself and the DH, and “regular” white chicken chili for the kids that they always ask for. THEY ATE ALL OF OURS and didn’t touch the other one!!! So delicious & easy – adding it to our regular rotation.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Sounds like you made some great modifications! And, sounds like the kids loved it! Thanks so much for letting us know how it turned out for you, Lydia!

  7. Better Me

    This is very good but a little too spicy for me with both cans of Rotel. I substituted 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes in my second batch and it was great.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      What a great substitute! I think I’ll try that myself!
