Instant Pot White Chicken Chili–this is a quick to make chili (only 5 minutes of pressure cooking time) that tastes like it’s been simmering all day. You can make this recipe with uncooked chicken or cooked chicken or turkey.
Instant Pot White Chicken Chili
I love easy soup recipes like this that start with sauteed onions and garlic and then are finished off with easy ingredients like jarred salsa and diced green chilies. It kind of hits the best of both worlds. The other good thing about this Instant Pot White Chicken Chili recipe is that it gives you the choice to use cooked or uncooked chicken.
The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook
This recipe comes from Barbara Schieving’s new cookbook, The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook. Barbara is the author of the blog, PressureCookingToday.com and is a friend of mine. She is so talented! This book has 200 fast and foolproof recipes that are for every brand of electric pressure cooker. So whether you have an Instant Pot or a Power Pressure Cooker XL or Crockpot Brand Pressure Cooker it doesn’t matter.
The first chapter is entitled Getting the Most from Your Electric Pressure Cooker. It has so many great tips and tricks and is a perfect read for someone who is new to pressure cooking. If you’re buying someone on your Christmas list an Instant Pot this year you’ll want to order this cookbook to go along with it. (Note: this book is temporarily out of stock but will be available on December 8th).
There are so many recipes that I can’t wait to try. Here is a short list of the one’s that intrigue me the most: steak and cheddar sandwiches, posole, creamy golden mushroom soup, Indian butter chicken, game day potatoes, lemon chicken scallopini, grown up mac and cheese, and mini creamy lemon pies.

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?
To make Instant Pot White Chicken Chili I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I also own the 6 quart Instant Pot IP-LUX60 V3 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker*. They are both great pressure cookers! The first one I mentioned has a yogurt making function but other than that they are fairly similar. The price difference between the two is about $20.Print
This is a quick to make chili (only 5 minutes of pressure cooking time) that tastes like it’s been simmering all day. You can make this recipe with uncooked chicken or cooked chicken or turkey.
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 3 cups (about 1 pound) of diced chicken*
- 2 cans (14.5 oz each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 jar (16 oz) salsa verde
- 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 2 cans (15.5 oz) cannellini beans or other white beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 3 Tbsp cold water
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning
- Sour cream, diced avocado, tortilla chips, and shredded cheese, for serving
- Select browning/saute and add the vegetable oil to the pressure cooking pot. When the oil is hot, add the onion. Saute for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the chicken, chicken broth, salsa, green chilies, cumin, red pepper flakes, and beans. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and 5 minutes cook time.
- When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and finish with a quick pressure release.
- In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Select Simmer/Saute and add the slurry to the pot, stirring constantly until the chili thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve topped with sour cream, diced avocado, tortilla chips, and shredded cheese, if desired.
*You can make this recipe with cooked chicken as well. I often buy a rotisserie chicken to use in quick, easy recipes like this, or I’ll use leftover chicken from another meal. The total cook time is the same with cooked or uncooked chicken.
