It’s soup season and this CROCK POT CHICKEN CHILI RECIPE is the easiest soup to throw together on a cold day!
Whenever fall rolls around, I am so ready for all the soup. I seriously could eat grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup every day. But really I love all soup. And luckily for me, my kids and hubby are on board with all the soup I make.
In fact, we make soup so much in the fall that I always have the things I need on hand in my pantry and freezer. You can check out my 3 tips for making quick fall soups to see how easy and quick dinner can be on the table.
My husband’s favorite soup is chili. It has become a tradition in our home that on Halloween we always eat chili and cornbread before the trick or treating can begin. Normally I brown up some ground hamburger to put in my chili, but when I make crock pot chili, I like adding chicken. It is a great twist on the usual and I like that I don’t have to cook anything ahead of time, to put it in the crock pot. Everything can go in at the same time and it turns out so good!
I do remove the chicken breasts from the crock pot before I serve the chili to either shred or dice up into cubes. Once it’s chopped up, I put it back into the crock pot and give it one more big stir. And I know what you’re thinking, yes, you can use frozen chicken breast in this recipe. It will cook thawed or frozen chicken in the same amount of time.
