Recipe Box, White Chicken & Corn Chili, Instant Pot or Slow Cooker

 

I made my first Instant Pot dinner the other night

Omg, I am in love!

I had no idea how incredible this appliance is!!

 

 

 

 

It can do so many things!

Forgive me for being slow to come to the Instant Pot party!!

 

 

 

 

Oh!

You can make this recipe in a Slow Cooker too!

You will find recipes for both methods at the end of the post

Either way this is a “winner winner chicken dinner!”

 

 

 

 

 

HHjr gave me the Instant Pot for Christmas,

but I think it was really because he wanted one…

He has made pot roast, bread, rice, mashed potatoes

Finally, I got a turn!

 

 

 

 

The one thing I learned right off the bat is to have your ingredients prepped and ready

Mis en place,  have onions chopped, garlic minced, beans rinsed etc.

 

 

 

 

Once you’ve done all the prep, the rest is a breeze!

 

 

 

 

Cook the onions in olive oil on the saute setting, it gets hot fast!!!

After 3 minutes add the garlic for another minute then turn off saute setting

 

 

 

 

Put the chicken into the pot and top with beans, corn, chiles

add broth and lime juice, season

and place cream cheese on top

 

 

 

 

Cover and set to pressure cook for 20 minutes

Keep in mind it will take about 10 minutes to pressurize,

then it will cook for 20 minutes and the timer will go off

Let the pot depressurize on it’s own for 10 more minutes,

then carefully manually finish depressurization by turning the vent lever,

keeping fingers away from where the machine vents

DO NOT put your fingers over the vent

 

 

 

 

Stir in the cream mixed with cornstarch

Like magic you will have this dreamy soup!

The chicken is velvet, it will easily break up

  into smaller pieces while you are stirring in the cream

 

 

 

 

Garnish and serve or cover and hold on the Keep Warm setting until you’re ready

 

 

 

this recipe is adapted from Sweet & Savory Meals

  1. Jenna, I am slow to the instant pot. It is funny that sometimes my mind doesn’t want to adjust to something new. Ooh, the chili looks delicious, and it seems that little effort and time are involved which would be a plus for sure. It looks like a cold rain today, a great morning for reading.

    • Thanks Pam, using it isn’t as hard or scary as I thought, I’m looking forward to experimenting with it, it’s supposed to make fabulous cheesecake! I did all my errands yesterday so I can stay home this cold rainy day!

  2. Thanks for including both recipes because I don’t have an instapot and it sure looks delish!

  3. Julie says:

    Hi Jenna, I love my IP and happy you have and like it too! I make brown rice in the IP every week. I love making soup in there and your soup looks and sounds just perfect for the winter. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Amy Kaminski says:

    This looks delish! Can’t wait to try it!

  5. thefrenchhutch says:

    I’m always last to bring home new appliances, I’m so old school. I do have a slow cooker but don’t use it often since we’ve dropped beef from our diet. I do love to make white chili and soup in the slow cooker, yum. Your recipe sounds delicious and I’m always looking for new recipes to try. I sure agree, get all ingredients together and prepped before, so much easier……..

    • I love to use my slow cooker because I get it going in the morning and dinner is waiting later, set and forget! But I will say, the Instant Pot is quickly becoming a favorite, I love the saute function! It has a slow cook function too, I’m going to try that this weekend. Looks like the rain and cold are gone for a while, yay!

  6. I think the scare factor has a lot to do with people not being too receptive to Instant Pots. But they are amazing once a person learns how to use them.

    Your white Chicken & Corn Chili looks delicious!

  7. Shannon@Belle Bleu Interiors says:

    Jenna, I am late to the Instant Pot club too. I received one for Christmas, and I am learning to like it. So far I have used it for baking potatoes and stew. I had delicious stew in 40 minutes! I was amazed. This weekend I’m going to try pepper steak and a roast. Thanks for the recipe, I can’t wait to try it!

    • After making this chili, I became a fan! I couldn’t believe the favor it had in such a short time and how tender the chicken was! I am glad you’re having success with yours Shannon, I am going to try the slow cook function this weekend.

  8. Jill Kuhn says:

    Sounds good Jenna! 😃 Looks like you are enjoying that Instant Pot! 👍

  9. Sounds like a great meal! Love my IP too:@)

  10. lulu says:

    The soup sounds delish, but what I’m really wondering is how much different is an instant pot from a slow cooker.

    • It’s very similar except it is super fast instead of super slow! I also love the saute function, it heats up in seconds so you can saute your onion or whatever right in the pot and then just add the rest of the ingredients

  11. Heart warming and savory. Thanks for sharing this!

  12. sherry says:

    i don’t know what an instant pot is, but i like the look of this dish!

  13. Mary says:

    Sounds and looks delish Jenna! It’s definitely soup weather!

  14. Linda says:

    Bravo, it looks delicious. I don’t have an instant pot. I do have crock pots and an electric pressure cooker. This recipe looks fantastic. I am going to give it a try soon. Thanks for sharing Jenna. Have fun with your new Instant Pot.

    • thanks Linda, I never got aboard the Instant Pot train mainly because I didn’t want another bulky appliance, but I cleared a spot on the baker’s rack so it’s out of the way yet convenient…My son loves the thing, and so I’m all for it if he wants to cook 🙂 It is fun to use…

  15. Shelia says:

    This sounds wonderful–will definitely try it! I have 2 confessions–I too came late to the instant pot party due to the scare factor. For me it was made worse by an incident when I bought my one and only pressure cooker years ago. My mother-in-law, a nurse and brilliant woman, used her pressure cooker all the time. But she did tell me that she once let something go awry and the dish ended up on the ceiling, Well, that did it for me–one brand new pressure cooker given away. But I grew up, have tried the instant pot and love it! If only I had one BEFORE I retired–oh, the hours I could have saved.

  16. Kitty says:

    I’m so glad that you’re enjoying the IP, Jenna! It is pretty amazing once you ge the hang of it. I tested positive for the flu last Friday, and I wanted chicken soup. The IP sure came in handy when I wasn’t feeling good. I had my soup ready in no time, using frozen chicken thighs. Your white chili looks amazing! Thank you for sharing both ways of making it.

    Sounds really good. Pinned!
