It’s chili season, so I thought I would share our favorite gluten free white chicken chili recipe. Isn’t it wonderful that chili can be made free of most allergens? It’s easy to make it gluten free and dairy free, and it’s a recipe that works so well for a potluck or party.
This is a really filling chili, and makes for a hearty dinner when served with cornbread. I love chili so much, and I really love chicken in chili along with white beans. This version is quick to make, not too spicy, (unless you want it to be), and gluten and dairy free. It’s delicious with crackers, or toasted bread, or of course with cornbread.

Gluten Free White Chicken Chili.
Simple and tasty, made with lots of beans and salsa verde, this gluten free white chicken chili is a family favorite.
- 2 cups rotisserie chicken meat shredded
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup frozen chopped onion
- 3 fresh garlic cloves minced
- 15 ounces Great Northern white beans rinsed and drained
- 15 ounces garbanzo beans rinsed and drained
- 2/3 cup salsa verde
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 16 ounces low sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
Cook the onions in the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat.
Add the shredded chicken and garlic, and stir to heat through.
Add the beans, spices, broth, and salsa verde. Raise the heat to high and cover the pot. Bring the chili to a boil.
Combine the water and cornstarch in a small lidded container. Shake well to remove any lumps.
Add the cornstarch mixture a little at a time, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until the chili is as thick as you like. Remove from the heat until ready to serve. Garnish with (dairy free) cheese and sour cream, if desired. We also like it with cornbread.
The rotisserie chicken is a shortcut, which is great for busy nights. If you prefer to use raw chicken, the cooking time will increase. Just make sure the chicken is cooked through before serving.
This gluten free white chicken chili is:
- family friendly
- free of the top 8 allergens
- a perfect recipe for the cold weather
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, you may want to try my vegan quinoa chili. It’s hearty, healthy, and so tasty.

Enjoy! If you want to substitute pinto beans in this gluten free white chicken chili, those work just as well. Feel free to up the spices if you want it hotter, but if you’re serving it to children, you will want to keep this mild.
