Nutritional information on Navy Beans can be found here.
New Crop navy beans are used in this recipe, making it even faster to prepare. They require no soaking!
If you don’t have access to new crop beans, please remember to soak your navy beans the night before preparing this chili. Rinse the beans in the morning and add them to the chili.
Prepare the chicken broth the day or evening before making this meal. Homemade Chicken Broth is both economical and nutrient dense. It can be prepared while you sleep in your slow cooker. You can find that recipe here.
I like using the Pampered Chef Cutting Edge Food Chopper when I have items that needs fine chopping.
The Pampered Chef Garlic Press is one kitchen tool that is put to use almost every day! It minces garlic perfectly for chili, soups and other baked dishes. Purchase it here: The Pampered Chef New Improved Garlic Press
Gluten Free White Chicken Chili
- 2 quarts chicken broth homemade
- 2 c. cooked chicken organic
- 2 c. new crop navy beans
- 1 pint salsa organic
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 4-6 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp. chili powder organic
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper organic
- 1/2 tsp. cumin organic
- 1 tsp. sea salt

Soak your navy beans, if you do NOT have new crop beans. Cover the beans with water, soak them overnight and rinse in the morning.
Turn your slow cooker on medium heat. Begin adding your ingredients; chicken broth, cooked chicken, navy beans, and salsa.
Chop the onion and add to the Chili.
Add your seasoning and minced garlic. (If you want more heat to your Chili, add 1 tsp. more of chili powder and 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper.
Slow cook for 6-8 hours. Serve warm with freshly grated raw cheddar cheese.
We prepare an Against the Grain baguette as a side to this meal. Slice the baguette into 1-2″ slices, butter each slice, and sprinkle with organic garlic salt. (These grain-free baguettes can be found in the freezer section at your local health food co-op or Whole Foods Market.)
Gluten Free White Chicken Chili would be considered “mild” for it’s hotness. If you enjoy a chili with a bit more heat, add more chili powder and cayenne pepper to taste.
Gluten Free White Chicken Chili serves 10 people generously. My family is a small family of 4 people. We always have plenty of leftovers. I store my extra Chili in wide mouth canning jars. Leave 1″ of space at the top and the jar can be placed in the freezer.
One note: label the top of the canning jar and include the date. I used to believe I would remember when I put the chili in the freezer and would skip the labeling. Since then I have learned that sometimes frozen jars of soup look similar and I definitely forget exactly when it went into the freezer.
