3 methods to cook white chicken chili
As promised our keto recipe includes 3 different methods to get the job done!
Instant Pot Method
Pressure cookers are vital when you are in a jam and need to prepare a dinner fast because of how simple, easy and fast they are. This recipe for white chicken chili is a basic recipe you can make on those nights when time is limited. Plus, there is a good chance you probably already have the ingredients on hand!
25 minutes from start to table
When you get home from work, toss all the ingredients in the Instant Pot and pressure cook for 15 minutes. After the pressure releases, you will have dinner ready in 10 minutes!
My favorite pressure cooker is the Instant Pot. It has multiple functions like sauté, slow cook, steam, pressure cooker and more. By using an Instant Pot, you can speed up the cooking time compared to if you cooked the same meal on the stove top.
Slow Cooker Method
Slow cookers the perfect solution to having dinner ready for you when you get home from work. Dump all the chili ingredients into the crock pot first thing in the morning. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Your keto white chicken chili will be ready for you when you get home.
Stove Top Method
It’s not required that you cook this keto chili in a pressure cooker or crockpot. If you don’t own either, you can cook this chicken chili on the stove top. It will take longer to cook this keto soup but it will taste just as good.
To cook your soup in the stove, add all of the chili ingredients to a stock pot except the cream cheese. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer on the stove for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add in cream cheese. Stir until melted and creamy. Shred chicken as instructed below.
