Portland, Maine Photographer :: White Chicken Chili

I have a newfound LOVE for white chicken chili. I’ve never really cared for chili. But this kind of chili? I just can’t get enough!! So, I figured I would share it with you all.


  • 2 or 3 boneless & skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion
  • garlic (however much you like! I really like garlic 🙂
  • oil
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can great northern beans
  • 1 can butter beans
  • corn (again, however much you like)
  • about 2 tbsp cilantro
  • about 2 tbsp lime juice (I just do two squeezes of the bottle)
  • a couple dashes of oregano
  • a dash of ground cumin
  • a couple dashes of hot sauce (which is optional, of course!)

#1. Boil the chicken. Once they are cooked all the way through, remove them and cut them into bite sized pieces. We just throw them in the blender for a few pulses and it’s good to go!

#2. Saute the onions and garlic in the oil until they are tender.

#3. Mix in all of the remaining ingredients and let it cook on low-ish for about 20 minutes or so!

#4. Serve and enjoy! I really like to eat my white chicken chili with tortilla chips 🙂

If you give this simple recipe a try, let me know what you think of it!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!
