How To Make Keto Chicken White Chili
In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken with the spices.
In a stock pot or thick-bottomed Dutch oven, melt the butter. Add the garlic cloves and green onion bases. Cook until the green onions become fragrant.
Add chicken broth, heavy cream, cream cheese, and Sriracha to the butter and green onions. Bring everything to a simmer and cook until the cream cheese melts.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Reduce the heat and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Make to sure to keep an eye on the chili so it doesn’t burn! After cooking, season with a little salt and pepper.
Serve with garnishes like more cheese, bacon, green onion slices, or jalapeño slices.
