False spring. It seems to happen every year around here, where we have a lovely sunny warm stretch. The birds begin sing, the daffodils start to bloom, the sun shines, and all the Portlanders start coming out of hibernation.
And then WHAM. We jump right back into chilly rain and real spring seems to move ever so far off, like a mirage in the dessert.
But this Keto White Chicken Chili is just what the doctor ordered to soothe our winter-battered souls. It’s thick and hearty, and full of flavor, with just enough kick to warm you right down to your toes.
Best of all, it’s incredibly easy. Just pop the ingredients in your slow cooker and in a few short hours, dinner is done.
A great recipe from Easy Keto Dinners!
This keto white chicken chili recipe is actually one from my popular cookbook, Easy Keto Dinners. I’d nearly forgotten about it, as I create so many recipes, I can hardly remember them all.
But my husband and I were casting around for an easy meal we could freeze and take on a ski trip. He mentioned chili and that little ding ding ding went off in my head.
Truth be told, I couldn’t even remember which book it was in, but I thumbed through and found it again and I am so glad I did. It was the perfect easy meal to warm up after a day of playing in the snow.
The kids ate it with gusto and begged me to make it again, and I thought it would be a great one to share with my readers too. It’s simply THAT good.

Slow cooker white chicken chili
This is an ideal recipe for your slow cooker (or your Instant Pot, if you prefer – I’ve included those instructions too). It’s what I call a dump-and-run recipe. It’s as simple as putting all of the ingredients in your pot, turning it on, and walking away.
And keto white chicken chili practically cooks itself – you simply need to take a few minutes at the end to shred the chicken and blend the soup. Dinner is done!
It’s a one-pot meal, so no need to prep any sides or veggies. The creaminess and thickness in this recipe comes from cauliflower so you are getting your meat and veggies all in one hearty soup.
Can you make Keto White Chicken Chili in advance?
You sure can and it freezes really well. We made a double batch for our ski trip. It’s an ideal recipe for keto meal prep.
Simply let it cool in the pot and shred the chicken as directed. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or transfer it to a large blender if you prefer.
Stir it all up together and transfer to an airtight freezer container. You can do it all as one big batch or several batches, or you can divvy it up into individual servings.
Freeze until ready to use. It should be good in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw on the counter in the container, or transfer the frozen chili to a pot and heat it up that way.
Then top with all your favourites like chopped avocado, and cheese if you don’t need to be dairy free. Even without the toppings, it’s delicious!
