A delicious and comforting winter chili that can be made in a crockpot or on the stove top!



  • 4 cups chicken broth (check your ingredients!)
  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can coconut milk (remember to use immersion blender to fully incorporate first)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 8oz green chilis
  • 1 pint mushrooms
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • Garnish:
  • Dairy-Free Coconut Sour Cream (Whole30)
  • Avocado
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Cilantro


  1. Add chicken to crock pot and cover with broth.
  2. Set to High heat and let cook 1 hour or until chicken is fully cooked and will flake apart.
  3. In large saute pan, add olive oil and bring to high heat.
  4. Add onions and garlic and stir until reduced, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add onion mixture to crock pot along with the remaining ingredients (except for the mushrooms).
  6. Stir to combine and let cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  7. Add mushroom about 30 minutes before you want to eat.
  8. Taste and add any additional salt or seasoning, as desired.
  9. Serve with dairy-free sour cream, avocado, jalapeño and/or cilantro.


This can easily be made on the stove-top: you will simply simmer the chicken in chicken broth in a large saucepan for approx. 20 minutes or until fully cooked.  Shred and place back in the pot with chicken broth.  Follow directions 3-5, but add onion mixture to saucepan.  Let simmer for approx. 15 minutes. Add mushrooms and simmer until they cook down, about 10 minutes.  Serve immediately.
