RECIPE | Skinny White Chicken Chili Meal Kit

This recipe is good for anyone who has a crockpot and loves a warm meal after a long day at work, but what makes this extra awesome is in the prep.

This is my debut Meal Kit recipe and I’m really excited to share this concept with you guys . I hope you like it and find it useful in your daily routine!

As temperatures drop for the season, the desire for a warm meal only increases. I mean, who doesn’t love coming home after a long day, throwing on some cozy slippers, sweat pants and cozying up to a warm bowl of {insert cozy warm food item here}? If you are shaking your head with a big “hell yes!”, then you’re going to LOVE meal kits!

A Meal Kit is a all the ingredients for a full meal that are pre-prepped, measured, chopped and ready for you when you want to have a hot meal. It’s basically a healthy homemade version of one of the meal delivery services like Hello Fresh or Blue Apron. But a lot less expensive 🙂

Instead of doing all your meal prep for individual lunches, salads or other delicious, but random items (lookin’ at you roasted sweet potatoes and baked chicken), why not prep full meals to make weeknights feel home cooked without the effort?

My goal is to come up with some recipes that you can prep during your normal meal prep time with the intention of throwing it all in the crockpot, casserole dish or skillet at any point during your week for a warm dinner. Sound good to anyone?

First up in this Meal Kit Recipe series is my Skinny White Chicken Chili. Made with all the ingredients your tummy will THANK YOU for… bone broth from my friends at Bonafide Provisions, plant-based half ‘n half from Ripple, hearty chicken and delicious spices!

I won’t go into all the details about the health benefits of bone broth, but basically there’s a reason why your momma gave you soup when you had a hurt tummy. Bone broth has the power to heal leaky gut, reduce inflammation and so much more. Read this article for more health benefits of bone broth.

Since you’ve done all the work ahead of time, simply toss in the ingredients to the crock-pot before running out the door for work and feel confident that you’ll come home to a yummy, warm meal!

Prep Time15 mins

I N G R E D I E N T S //

 2 cups Trader Joes Fire Roasted Frozen Corn
 1 medium yellow onion (chopped, finely)
 2 cups Ripple Half 'n Half (plant-based half'n half, but you can use any cream you prefer)
 4 cloves garlic
 1 tsp course salt
 1 tsp cumin
 ½ tsp white pepper
 ¼ tsp chili powder
For the seasoned chicken:
 1 lb chicken breast
 1 tsp salt
 ½ tsp cayenne pepper
 1.50 tsp cumin

Topping Ideas //
 fresh cilantro
 avocado
 shredded cheese

First step of this process is to lay out your meal-kit storage containers.
-Gallon bag for the chicken + seasonings
-Small snack bag or container for seasonings
-Mason jar or tuberware for the beans
-Mason jars (you will need two to hold all the liquid) or tuberware for the liquids

Place your chicken breast in a gallon bag & toss in all the seasonings needed for the chicken. Seal up the bag and work the seasonings around to coat the chicken.
PRO-TIP: Cut your chicken breasts in half so the chicken shreds into smaller pieces in the chili when its done!

3

Measure out the rest of your seasonings and place all together in a snack bag so you can easily sprinkle them in when you're ready to toss everything in the crock-pot.

4

Open the cans of beans, rinse and put in a container with the green chilis. You don't need to worry about mixing them up or anything. This is just for convenience purposes!

5

Add the chopped onion, chicken bone broth & frozen corn to a container. Seal it up and you're all set!

6

Place everything in the fridge until you're ready to toss into the crockpot. I would make it within a week of prepping all these ingredients so the chicken is fresh.

7

To Cook:
-Place the chicken breast in the crock-pot first by laying flat on the bottom
-Dump in the beans & chilis
-Add in the seasonings mix
-Dump in the broth, corn, onion mix
-stir a little so the seasonings mix up with the liquids and cook on low for 8-10 hours

8

Finally, after cooking for 8-10 hours, with a large fork, break up the chicken in the chili. It should fall apart very easily for you.
Then you will stir in the half 'n half and let it sit for another 20 minutes before serving!
PRO-TIP: for extra creamy deliciousness (but not as "skinny" of a version of this chili) add in a half block of cream cheese with the half 'n half and let it melt before serving.
