Crockpot Chicken and Rice Chili

This Crockpot Chicken and Rice Chili Recipe is inspired by Erin's recipe on for her Crockpot White Chicken Chili. I planned to just post on instagram with a link, but I switched it up a bit and we love it so much I decided to give it it's own post! Apparently I made it just in time too, because it dropped about 30 degrees since yesterday. BRR! I'm not ready for winter weather. 

Crockpot Chicken and Rice Chili Recipe | MALLORIE OWENS

If you know me, you know I love to bake, but cooking has never come naturally to me. Dave and I got married right as I started familiarizing myself with the stove/oven more and he loves to cook (and is so good at it), so I haven't done a ton of cooking since we've been married.

This year, one of my goals has been to get more comfortable with different recipes and step outside my comfort zone when it comes to cooking. Another has been to start using my crockpot more often, I think I've used it once, mayyyyybe twice, since we got one. Now that we have a wild toddler I am loving crockpot meals that you can just start and let it do it's thing!

One of the main sites that has been my go-to for easy-to-follow, healthy, and husband approved recipes is Well Plated. I actually took dance lessons with Erin in high school, so it's fun to see her blog become so successful! Her Crockpot Buffalo Chicken that she makes for her taquitos has been made several times lately. And I know this chili will be something I make over and over again. So hearty and delicious without the guilt that usually comes with comfort food.

Crockpot Chicken and Rice Chili
This Crockpot Chicken and Rice Chili is so hearty and delicious without the guilt that usually comes with comfort food.
  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • 32 oz Chicken Stock
  • 2 (15 oz) Cans of White Beans (I used Great Northern)
  • 3 Cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Large Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 2 Cups Cooked White Rice
  • 1 (10 oz) Can of Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
  • 2 Teaspoons Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Oregano
  • Fresh Cilantro (for garnish)
  • Grated Cheese (for serving)
  • Stonyfield Organic Yogurt (for serving)
Place all ingredients in your crockpot other than the rice, yogurt, cheese, and cilantro and stir well. Cook on high for 2-3 hours (mine took 3) or 4-6 hours on low.If you don't have rice already made in your fridge (this is something I always try to keep on hand since Iris loves it), make it while the other ingredients are cooking. We love our rice maker for so many types of meals, I'll make sure to link it!Once your crockpot has worked it's magic, remove one chicken breast and set aside to store in fridge for future recipes. The chicken turns out deliciously juicy, but I thought one breast was plenty and I can't wait to use the other for wraps etc throughout the week.Remove the second chicken breast and shred. Put your shredded chicken back in the pot and stir well. Serve and garnish with the grated cheese, yogurt, and cilantro!

Hope you enjoy! You can find all of my recipes in my recipe index. And this is our rice cooker, I use it just about every other day for rice, steamed veggies, dumplings, quinoa, etc. LOVE this thing!


Winter Fashion Favorites on Storenvy.

As a "Women's Fashion Influencer" on Storenvy, one of my jobs is to regularly check out the new additions to the site and "envy" the items that are my favorites. Since Storenvy is still a somewhat new and growing platform for small shops, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites for this winter season on here.

Aztec Waterfall Cardigan in Burgundy from Paper Hearts ≫≫ I love all things with aztec prints and I especially love the burgundy color of this if I owned this, I'd pretty much wear it on the daily. It looks so comfy, without leaving you looking like a slouch.

Mexicana Clutch from Meg Biram Shop ≫≫ How pretty is this clutch?! I love the design and it would be nice to not always lug around my huge purse/camera bag/bowling bag (as Dave lovingly calls it).

Abby Cable Knit Beanie from Pepper Knot ≫≫ A classic black beanie should be in everyone's wardrobe, but they're especially useful when snowpocalypse hits. ;)

Round Toe Multiple Strap Heels from Love Street ≫≫ I love these wedges and they're perfect if you're having weather like we are in Austin...or you just want to be dressy, even if you're feet freeze. Been there. This camel color is my current obsession and I want it in everything...clutches, shoes, big leather totes...I could go on.

Silver Plated Necklace from Storenvy Pop Up ≫≫ This silver necklace is gorrrgeous and would dress up any winter outfit. I love the simplicity of this necklace, it's right up my alley as far as jewelry goes.

Warm Cups Sweatshirt by R A I N ≫≫ This sweatshirt says it all and would be perfect for cozying up inside to wait out the snowpocalypse.

Bird Tote by Even&Odd ≫≫ How cute is this bird tote?! The perfect little commuter bag if you have to get out in the cold weather. Stuff in a few books and there's still room for all the layers you'll have to take off as soon as you step inside.

Fluffy Jacket from Haute Basics ≫≫ I probably never would have picked this jacket out, but recently I've seen a few of my favorite fashionable people sporting these fuzzy jackets like this and I'm still not sure I can pull it off, but I love them!

Bullhead High Rise Skinniest Jeans from Favo ≫≫ I love dark, plum colored pants in the winter. I have a pair from Target a few years ago that I wear alllll the you can see here, here, and here.
