Keto Crockpot White Shredded Chicken Chili is keto comfort food at it’s finest! Healthy chicken, creamy cheese, and a hint of spice combine to create a low carb slow-cooking chili that is sure to become a favorite.
I may have found the perfect match. A creamy shredded chicken chili recipe that cooks to perfection in the crockpot! Inspired by The Cookie Rookie’s fabulous recipe for White Chicken Chili I created this combination – omitting the off-limit keto ingredients (beans) and adding a little more healthy fat. The result? Slow cooker perfection at 5.5 net carbs per serving!
Why Beware of Beans?
Yeah, I know I’m setting myself up for the perfect joke here, but all kidding aside – beans are not keto-friendly. Most traditional chicken chili recipes contain Northern Beans, and while they are an excellent source of fiber, they weigh in at 24.9 Net Carbs per cup. That’s way too many for anyone trying to reach or maintain ketosis!
In case I’ve got you curious about other types beans, here’s a little Bean 411:
- Black Beans – 26 Net Carbs per Cup
- Pinto Beans – 30 Net Carbs per Cup
- Kidney Beans – 27 Net Carbs per Cup
The good news is that you won’t miss the beans in this keto crockpot white shredded chicken chili! Here’s the low down on the macros per serving:
Total Fat – 16.4 – Protein – 23.3 – Net Carbs – 5.5Print

2–3 lbs Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
8 Ounces Cream Cheese
1 & 1/2 cup diced onion
1 Cup Green Chiles
3 Teaspoons Minced Garlic
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
2 Teaspoons Fresh Lime Juice
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Heat olive oil, lime, and garlic on medium heat in a non-stick skillet and saute onions for 2-3 minutes until clear.
Add chicken, broth, green chiles & all dry seasonings to your crockpot. Add in onions & garlic. Set the crockpot for 6 hours on low. Or 4 on high. Walk away & move on with your life for the next few hours.
After 4-6 hours it’s time to return to the kitchen to shred the chicken. All you have to do is stir it with a fork inside the crockpot. No need for any extra dishes or work!
That’s it. Chicken shredded.
Last Step-You’re almost done!
Add cream cheese followed by heavy cream & cook for another 45 minutes-1 hour.
Cayenne Pepper-Optional-My kids find it too spicy. If you’re not into spice you may want to skip it!
Top with Full Fat Sour Cream
Serve with Tortilla Chips (for members of the family who don’t follow the keto diet!)
