Healthy Chicken Chili (Slow Cooker)

Healthy Chicken Chili (Slow Cooker)

Cara Lanz
Healthy chicken chili in the slow cooker takes just 10 minutes to throw together. Everyone will love this rich and flavorful chili, filled with juicy white chicken, black beans, black-eyed peas, chili beans, hominy, and green chilis, in a warm and zesty tomato sauce. Easy enough for weeknight dinners and special enough for weekend get-togethers.
