Slow Cooker Chicken Chili Recipe

Let’s face it it is Fall time and cooler temperatures are here if you like it or not. Just because the weather cools off does not mean after school activities slow down either. Since I want a warm home cooked meal most nights I look to my slow cooker for a lot of meals. My crock pot is on the counter 3 or the 7 days during the fall time. I wanted to share this amazing slow cooker Chicken chili recipe that you can add frozen raw chicken, no prep besides cutting a few veggies you may choose to add.

I have also nick named this recipe, recycle day chili. Since most of the items are canned I like to do it around recycle day!!I had some cubed frozen chicken breasts in my freezer so I experimented and threw those in. They did get a little broken up but I thought it was a delicious dish anyway.

crock pot chicken chili


What a great way to warm up on a cool night. Use a crock pot liner for easy clean up too. This makes about 6 servings and you can easily double for a larger crowd or if you want to freeze some for a later date!!
