Gut-Healing Easy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
Gut-Healing Easy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is a gluten-free, hearty and healthy crock pot recipe. You’d never guess it’s low-fat, too!
This post is sponsored by Vital Proteins. All opinions expressed, as always, are my own.
Chicken breast, white beans, canned green chiles, chopped shallot, garlic, seasonings, and your favorite toppings combine to create a satisfying chili recipe that’s high in protein and fiber, low in fat, and gluten and dairy free. I also included a couple scoops of Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin to promote digestive health. Don’t worry if you don’t have this on hand; it’s totally optional.
VITAL PROTEINS BEEF GELATIN
Vital Proteins brand gelatin contains only one unflavored ingredient – collagen protein. Vital Proteins collagen protein is a pasture-raised, grass-fed bovine hide gelatin powder. It offers comprehensive benefits for health, fitness, and beauty.
The gelatin can be mixed into both hot and cold liquids, but will gel if blended in cold or extremely hot. It is gluten free, Non-GMO, sugar free, paleo friendly and Whole30® Approved. Uses:
- For a hot drink, mix 1-2 scoops collagen protein into 4 oz. cold liquid, let sit for one minute then add 4 oz. of hot liquid to dissolve. Fruit juice, broth, or herbal tea are great suggestions.
- For adding to food, gelatin can be utilized in a variety of your favorite foods such as fruit gelatin, custards, soups, stews, smoothies and ice cream.
GUT-HEALING EASY SLOW COOKER WHITE CHICKEN CHILI
Gut-Healing Easy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is going to be a hit with your family and leftovers just get better and better (hello easy weekday lunches!) This particular recipe makes a smaller batch, feeding about 3 people, so for plenty of leftovers I would suggest doubling the recipe. Actually, there’s lots of chicken, so you may just want to add another can of beans and another can of chicken broth. As an added plus, the ingredients can be assembled in the crock the night before (here’s the crock pot I have >) then popped onto the base and slow cooked whenever you’re ready. Delicious, easy, and healthy – what are you waiting for?!
