This well seasoned white chili is super easy to prepare in the slow cooker, and it gets lots of flavor from chicken, garlic, white beans, and peppers.

Use boneless chicken thighs, chicken breasts, or a combination of both. Cumin, garlic, and oregano give this chili excellent flavor.

  • 1 cup chopped onion
