  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1.5 pounds chicken breasts cut into small pieces
  • 30 ounces cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 30 ounces garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • 2 Tablespoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • cilantro and avocado for toppings


  1. Place the olive oil and chopped onion in the crock pot.
  2. Add the chicken, spices, drained and rinsed beans, salsa verde, and chicken broth. Place the cover on the crock pot.

  4. Just before serving, combine the cornstarch or arrowroot powder and the water in a small container with a lid. Shake well. Drizzle the mixture into the crock pot and stir. Place the cover back on and let it cook for a few minutes so that the chili thickens up.
