Shredded Chicken Chili [Recipe]

Shredded Chicken Chili Recipe #ketogasm #keto #ketogenic #atkins #healthy #chicken #chili #recipe

If you’ve been reading my blog, you may already be quite familiar with my undying love for chili. But if you’re new here, allow me to enlighten. I once rushed home to a text that I misread as “Netflix and chili?” Imagine my dismay when I realized there was no chili. Only chill. Ugh. Seriously though, I’m a bit of a chili fiend… my week just isn’t complete without it. If there’s one thing I know, it’s chili. I can guarantee you this shredded chicken chili recipe is a keeper.

Shredded Chicken Chili Recipe #ketogasm #keto #ketogenic #atkins #healthy #chicken #chili #recipeI’m all about that meal prep and shredded chicken has become part of my regular routine… it’s always in the fridge ready to go! With a stock of shredded chicken on hand, this dinner comes together for me in a matter of minutes. If you aren’t much of a meal planner or prepper, you can quickly boil and shred the chicken before combining all of your chili ingredients or you can go the rotisserie chicken route and shred that up instead. See! Nutritious cooking doesn’t have to be that complicated!

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as mixing a few ingredients together over heat to enjoy a healthy, comforting home cooked meal without having to stress over it.

The texture and flavor lend itself really nicely to the flavors of traditional chili. While I’ve always loved white chicken chili, this is definitely not that!

Shredded Chicken Chili [Recipe]

Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breasts, shredded
  • Butter, 1 tablespoon
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • Chicken broth, 2 cups
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 can (3 oz) tomato paste
  • Chili powder, 1 tablespoon
  • Cumin, 1 tablespoon
  • Garlic powder, ½ tablespoon
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • Cream cheese, 4 oz
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Prepare chicken by boiling chicken breasts in water or broth on stovetop for 10-12 minutes, just barely covered in liquid. Once the meat is no longer pink, remove from fluid and shred with two forks. This same technique can also be used with a pressure cooker at pressure for 5 minutes with a natural release, or a slow cooker for 4-6 hours. Whatever’s clever for you! Rotisserie chicken meat can be substituted for the breasts as well.
  2. In a large stockpot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Add the shredded chicken, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and jalapeno to the pot and combine by gently stirring over the burner. Bring to a boil, then drop it down to a simmer over medium-low heat and cover for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut cream cheese into small, 1-inch chunks.
  5. Remove lid and mix in the cream cheese. Increase the heat back up to medium-high and continue to stir until the cream cheese is completely blended in. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Eat as-is or garnish with toppings of your choice. I love cilantro and Monterey jack cheese for ooey gooey goodness.

  • Hi! I made your chicken chilli last night and it was amazing! I was wondering if you had the carb count? Mayne I missed it in your article!
    • So glad you like it! I've been having some issues with the nutrition table that I'm using not showing in the posts... but it looks fixed now! Thanks for pointing that out. To answer your question: 1/4 of the recipe = 10 net carbs, 1/6 of the recipe = 6.8 net carbs.
        • I use the USDA website and generate an excel table for the specific quantities for each ingredients. It's the most reliable source of nutrition information that I've found. https://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list
  • I made this for dinner tonight! It is the second week of our keto diet and my husband is enjoying it less than I am... well this was the first thing that he had a second serving of! I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, and used a few extra fresh peppers! Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
    • Sure thing! For the whole recipe, you'll have 1267 calories. 1/4 of the recipe is 316 calories and 1/6 of the recipe is 211 calories. Hope that helps! :)
  • Great recipe! I'm going to try this tonight, but I'm going to take out the butter and replace the cream cheese with plain Greek yogurt to make it a bit more healthier! Hopefully it will still be just as flavorful and the texture will be just as creamy as it looks in the picture! :)
  • This looks amazing! I can't wait to try it! Do you think it would work if I just dumped everything but the cream cheese in the crock pot for 6-8 hours, then shredded the chicken and add the cream cheese at the end?
    • HI Kelly, I cooked this recipe exactly that way and it turned out really well. Sauteed veggies, dumped them with chicken, tomatoes, broth into crockpot on low all day with spices. Added cream cheese and shredded the chicken about 15 min before serving. We really enjoyed it.
  • This was...absolutely...amazing!!! KETOGASM is my new favorite place for recipes and inspiration! Thank you so much for this blog!!!
  • I made this last night, and it was great. I literally just threw all of the ingredients into the crock pot, cooked for 8 hrs overnight. I added shredded cheese and a spoon of sour cream on top. Yummy!
  • This chili was so yummy! I made it last night and have it all ready to go for lunches this week. I had not tried a keto chili recipe yet...and I like this one so much, I don't think I need to try anything else. Thank you so much!
  • This recipe looks awesome! I've got everything going in the ol' crockpot right now. Just a note/question, in the nutrition info for diced tomatoes, is that for 28 oz? And if so, what brand did you use?! That number was what I ended up getting for just 14 oz of tomatoes.
  • This looks amazing! I was looking at the nutrition info for diced tomatoes though and was a bit confused. 1/2 a cup of canned diced tomatoes is 5 grams of net carbs and 30 calories? How did you get your numbers? We are definitely making this tonight but I just want to get the numbers right. We are loving your blog!
    • Hey there! I always pick up the organic diced tomatoes from Costco (Kirkland brand). The nutrition label has 3 total carbs, 1 gram fiber per 1/2 cup. I realize my can size was a totally off though in my recipe! I use a 14.5 oz can, correcting now!
  • This was fantastic!!!! I added a little more jalapeño and some extra chilli powder because I like spicy food... it was delicious... definite keeper in my keto playbook :-) Thank You!!!
  • I'm making this now...it doesn't seem like it could possibly be 4 servings---its barely coming up 2 inches on my dutch oven. Is this meant to feed a family of 4?
  • Made this for a chili cook-off potluck we recently attended and of all the chili's brought to the party it was by far the crowd favorite! So good! Only tweak we made when cooking was using 8oz of cream cheese instead of 4oz to thicken the chili up a tad more (and cut down on a bit of heat since my husband went a big gung ho with the spice factor). SO GOOD! New favorite in our house! Thank you so much for sharing!
    • I made this tonight for supper and used 2 oz of the canned green chilies instead of the jalapeño - it was fantastic! Next time I won't shred the chicken quite as much, or maybe leave 1/2 the chicken a little chunkier. Great recipe - thanks!!
  • Just made this chili and LOVED IT! Did have to sub a can of Rotel for the diced tomatoes and jalapeno because I didn't have one and left the onions only partially cooked for the crunch. Next time we make this I want to try it with shredded pork. Hubby is not dieting so he added chili seasoned kidney beans to his. He also liked it even though he does not like chicken! This put me in mind of the richness of Lobster Bisque. Can't wait to try some other dishes. THANK YOU
  • I have made this twice so far & my teenagers LOVE it! It's my new go-to. Thank you for sharing! I can't wait to try more recipes
  • Can I cook everything at once together in a crock pot? Will it turn out the same? We have made the regular recipe 6 times now.
  • I know you broke the servings down to 1/4 but is there a more definitive amount we can use for a serving. i.e 1 cup 1. 5 cup ?
