A Busy Day Calls for Easy White Chicken Chili

I was up at Deer Valley last week for The Better Blog Retreat. I had the best time with my blogging friends. It was a fun and inspiring weekend, but boy, am I exhausted. I stayed up way too late and ate way too much, but I guess that was all part of the fun. I hope I can make it through Monday. Dinner is definitely going to be easy tonight. Josh was super dad while I was gone so I am going to make him his favorite Easy White Chicken Chili for dinner. He deserves a little spoiling:)

Rotisserie Chicken for Easy White Chicken Chili

Josh usually makes this white chicken chili, but tonight I am going to make it for him. I think I can handle it on my own because it is beyond easy. The secret? Store-bought rotisserie chicken. I am going to pick up a rotisserie chicken from Smith’s and shred it for this white chicken chili. Easy peasy! This is also a great recipe to make when you have leftover chicken to use up.

White Chicken Chili is a Favorite

This white chicken chili is full of flavor and I love it because can be made in about 30 minutes. It is a great quick and easy weeknight meal. If you want to go all out, you can make Green Chile Cheddar Cheese Cornbread to go with. I am going to make a pan tonight because Josh loves dunking the cornbread in a hot bowl of chili.

If you are short on time, but still want a comforting and delicious dinner, make this Easy White Chicken Chili. It is Josh’s favorite and I think you will love it too!
