I absolutely love chili especially Instant Pot Chili, however, I hate the beans. This was my first go at Chicken Chili in The Instant Pot and it turned out great. You basically dump and cook this recipe and within a short cook time, you are ready to fill your dinner bowls with delectable soup.
It is painless and hearty and only has 3 net carbs per serving. This is the perfect soup to serve up if you are on a low carb diet trying to watch your intake. I recently started a low carb diet, and this soup was a blessing.
Many people get fired up to start a diet and then day two or three they fall off the wagon. Now I am not judging as I have been guilty of this in the past, and I figured out my issue with dieting.
Chicken Chili in The Instant Pot No Beans
I struggled so much with finding lunches and dinners that fit into my diet plan but were appealing to me. I don’t want to eat the same three things over and over again that has no flavor.
That is where I gained the inspiration to make this Instant Pot white chicken chili. It fit into the carb intake and offered rich and creamy flavors that actually were pleasing to my palate.
I topped it with some avocado, to up the protein a little bit, and it was amazing. The kids even ate it, which was a huge win for me. Then I used the leftovers to meal prep for a few days for me.
A Perfect Instant Pot Frozen Chicken Recipe
It made sticking to this lower carb diet a lot easier, and I can even freeze this soup and reheat for later too. This is a great instant pot frozen chicken recipe, that you can add to your list.
I didn’t have any thawed chicken handy, so I used frozen chicken and it cooked to perfection in the Instant Pot in no time. It was tender and juicy and shredded perfectly for little bites of chicken in each a bite of this instant pot white chicken chili.
You can also grab other toppings to let your family add what they want for added flavor. A dollop of sour cream, a splash of hot sauce, oyster crackers for dipping, and each member of the family can customize the soup so that they enjoy every drop of it.
I loved being able to create this chicken chili with no beans to fit my diet needs. So often I see chili recipes that use beans, and I finally brainstormed, why not get in the kitchen and make a chili that fits what I want. Instead of taking time searching, just play around and see what comes out of it.
To my surprise, a new favorite chili recipe came out of it. I have been making this chili for a while now and so glad I took the time to try, because the flavors are perfect, and I am happy with the creamy texture, it makes for a comforting bowl of chili.
