    Excellent flavor! Made it in the crock pot. Added an extra can of green chiles and an extra half pound of chicken breasts. Family loved it, will make again

    It was easy to make overall, but tasted like a lot of effort.

    Added heavy cream + cotija cheese vs cream cheese. Crowd pleaser dinner!

    Hands down one of the best chicken chili recipes I’ve ever used! I added a bit more garlic and seasonings than the recipe called for and sautéed a poblano pepper with the other veggies. Deliciously delightful!

    Needs more spice but good overall! I reccomend adding some siracha to the final product!

    Delicious! Just enough spice, and the chicken was so tender. I cooked it in a slow cooker and served it with cornbread.

    Not a huge fan of chili but decided to try this and it’s amazing! Best chili I’ve ever had . I didn’t put as many beans in it but so good .

    It turned out very much like it’s pictured! I used black beans because I didn’t have navy beans. I just rinsed the black beans and added them in the later stages of cooking the soup. I also thickened our soup a little (1 TBS) with corn starch so it was creamy. I served it with cilantro, sour cream and grated white cheddar for toppings. Great with corn bread, too! Very happy husband and kids!

    I made more than the recipe calls for so I guessed on measurements and did not add beans or green chilies and stuck with jalapeños instead and it came out amazing

    It was AMAZING!!!! I used 7oz can of green Chile’s. I also sautéed 1 jalapeño first in the oil before adding the chicken. I’d personally sautée a jalapeño, onion, and garlic first til translucent then add chicken but that’s just me 😃 topped it with avocado too mmmmm

    fantastic! i never follow measurements. i prepare everything to taste. i cooked the chicken very brown and shredded it. definitely eating every bite of this.

    Amazing! So delicious and easy to make. I modified the recipe a bit- I added everything into a slow cooker and opted for low fat cream cheese, which I added in towards the last 30 mins. I also added more corn and chicken and only 30 oz (2 cans) of white beans. It turned out amazing- definitely 5 star worthy!
