I love crockpot recipes because they make healthy eating easy, even on busy days. With just a little bit of prep, you can throw a few ingredients in the crockpot and come home from a long day with dinner already ready to be served. I don’t like traditional chili, so I’ve always wanted to try a lightened up version using chicken and lots of veggies and no added fat. After reading through a variety of white chicken chili recipes on the Internet, I adapted this version and it was a huge success! Now that it’s getting cold outside, it’s a perfect comforting dish that is filled with fiber, lean protein and a healthy dose of veggies and spices! I hope you enjoy the result just as much as my family and I did.
