This easy white chicken chili recipe is creamy, hearty, comforting, and the perfect thing to serve at family gatherings or on game day.
Sauté the onion in a large pot for 5-7 minutes over medium-high heat (ok if onion lightly browned).
Add the chicken pieces and cook, stirring often, until they're no longer pink on the outside.
Stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
Add the remaining ingredients except for the cream cheese. Increase the heat and bring the chili to a boil. Reduce the heat so it's simmering, and cook for 10 minutes.
Add in the cream cheese and let it melt (help it along by breaking it up with your spoon). Cook for another 8-10 minutes or so until the cream cheese has nicely incorporated into the sauce and it's warmed through.
Season chili with salt & pepper as needed. Serve it up and and top as desired.
