    I have made this many times for family and company. It is a very quick weeknight meal. I have occasionally used pre-cooked turkey leftovers or Perdue Shortcuts chicken to speed along prep. I usually add frozen corn also and top with avocados and cheese. I will try adding a can of tomatoes after reading reviewers tips.

    Really good, quick, easy dinner...one of my favorites. I have doubled and just recently tripled the recipe, when done simmering for 10 minutes put it all in a crock pot on "keep warm" was good throughout the football game. Thanks McCormick!

    My family LOVED this! I always add a can of petite diced tomatoes to it. I have a really hard time finding it though.

    By far some of the best chili I've ever made! Dinner was prepped, cooked, and on the table within 20 minutes! Love, love, love

    This is by far one of my favorite recipes. I just never seem to get tired of it. I'll usually stick a can of mild Rotel in the food processor to help add a bit more spice, and add frozen corn as listed in the Cooking Tips.

    I have made recipe after recipe of white chicken chili. This is by far the best tasting and easiest to make. A hometown restaurant makes this and I would swear they use this seasoning packet. It's that good.

    Love this- easy, healthy and delicious. My family (including the kids!) love this. I make it all the time. I double the beans and add tomatoes- top with sour cream and cheese. I use a food processor to slice up the frozen chicken- super quick.

    For a twist, try marinating the Chicken with a Lawry's or Grillmates marinade before adding to the slow cooker. My whole family loves this dish.

    This was a great recipe. Easy to follow and the flavor was not too hot for those who like it tame.
