Gluten Free White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe



Gluten Free White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

By Jen Springer


What, chili with no tomato, beef, red pepper, or red beans?

You will love this chili if you like gluten free, chicken, and a sassy kick.  Recipes that aren’t the same ‘ol, same ‘ol are always fun to make. Everyone will want this recipe if you serve this baby up at your next pot luck, guaranteed.

I made two types of chili this go around, a white chicken and also red bean-less. Both were gone in 3 days because they were SO DELICIOUS! (Stay tuned for the red bean-less.)

In our kitchen chili made with kidney beans, ground beef, tomato paste, and oyster crackers doesn’t cut it.  It has to be creative and super tasty as well as being gluten free still blood sugar friendly.


The Recipe:


1 Pound of Ground Chicken

1 Tablespoon of Bacon Fat

3 – 15 oz. Cans of Drained and Rinsed Northern White Beans

10 Fresh Large Tomatillos: Husked, Scrubbed, and Rinsed Well

2 Fresh Serrano Peppers, Minced

2 Teaspoon Cumin

2 Vegetable Bullion (I use Rapunzel organic because it’s soft and I can break it up and add to a recipe in little pieces)

1 Bunch of Fresh Cilantro, Chopped




Place the 3 cans of drained white beans in a large pot.  Brown chicken with bacon fat, do not drain. Add to the beans.  Quarter the tomatillos and add to a food processor with the serranos.  Pulse about 5 or 6 times, until tomatillos are still a bit chunky.  Add tomatillos and serranos to chicken. Finish off the pot with the cumin and 2 bullion cubes.

Let the ingredients cook over low heat for 4 hours.  Immediately before serving salt to taste and add chopped cilantro. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and ENJOY!

    Hi Jen,
    When you live alone, you tend to not want to cook well, at least thats what happens to me. But now, with some new medical conditions that I’ve been diagnosed with, it looks like I’m going to have to. I’ve been looking for gluten free recipes and there are plenty, but none that look so great. I’m still confused as to exactly what gluten is and what it does to your body.
    Anyway, I was thrilled to see your recipe above. It sounds delicious and sounds fairly simple to make. However, I’ve never heard of serrano’s. Can you get this in any grocery store. And, I wont touch raw chicken. It grosses me out. Do you think Whole Foods has ground chicken. I can’t wait to try this.
