Do you even come home and wish dinner would cook itself? This chicken chili is quick and easy!

Ever since I got an instant pot for Christmas, it’s kind of come true.  Ok, I still have to do a little prep, but I’m not spending nearly as much time in the kitchen.

With my instant pot, I can throw something in, set the time, and walk away.  WALK AWAY!

This is probably my favorite kitchen gadget of all time! My instant pot cooks things faster than I ever thought possible. One of my favorite things to cook in the instant pot is rice.  It turns out perfectly and only cooks for 3 minutes! I love it! It’s A-mazing! If you don’t have one, you should really look into it, you need a break mama!

Okay, enough about my love for my instant pot, let’s talk about chicken chili!

When the weather starts to get colder, I’m always ready for some homemade chili! I love quick and easy meals, so this is one of my favorites.

What I love about this meal is that I usually have everything on hand in my pantry. And it makes exactly 2 quarts, which is perfect for storing it in the fridge. This is a great meal and I love to take it as lunch!

  2. In a large pan, add chicken, lime juice, all canned ingredients and seasonings {chicken broth, Campbell's tomato soup (no additional water), Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, black beans (drained and rinsed), and sweet corn}

  3. Use a fork or tongs to shred the chicken

  4. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 25-30 minutes

Serve hot with toppings!

 I hope your family enjoys this soup as much as we do!

  1. sounds yummy and super delicious!!

    1. It is delicious! One of my favorite go-to meals when I don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen 🙂

  2. Well this will be popular if it is something that the husband can make. I think he can handle opening and dumping some cans into a pot to warm up. Wish we had this earlier in the winter.

    1. It’s great for chilly spring days too!

  3. I have actually never tried a chicken child before, but it looks lovely me a great change-up from my usual beef based one. And I need some instant pot recipes.

    1. You could totally make the whole thing in an instant pot. I will have to see how long it takes and add instant pot cooking times 🙂

  4. 5 stars
