19 High-Protein White Chicken Chili Recipes That'll Feed Your Whole House

High protein, high flavor.

Brooke Greenberg / BuzzFeed

White chicken chili is easy to make — and even easier to customize. 🥘

Make a super hearty batch in the colder months or a lighter version packed with produce in the summer. If you're vegetarian? Ditch the chicken for white beans. Not in the mood to cook? Try a hands-off version for the Crock Pot or Instant Pot. You'll find recipes for all of these (and more!) below.
