  • Instant Pot (or Pressure Cooker)


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 30 ounces canned white beans rinsed and drained; Great Northern beans or Canellini beans work great
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounces canned diced green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 15 ounces canned corn optional, drained


  • Press the SAUTE button. Add olive oil to hot pot. Add in chicken, onion and garlic powder and cook for 4-5 minutes or until onions are translucent and the chicken starts to brown (we aren't fully cooking the chicken, just browning the edges).
  • Stir in beans, broth, chilies and seasonings (also add corn, if using). Place the lid on the top of the Instant Pot. Move the valve to SEALING (not venting).
  • Press the MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOK) button and set timer for 7 minutes.
  • When the timer is finished, move the valve to VENTING and do a QUICK RELEASE with the pressure (you can also let this do a natural release for a few minutes if you want).
  • Remove the lid and stir the contents of the pot. Press CANCEL to turn the "KEEP WARM" feature off.
  • Stir in sour cream and whipping cream, mix well. Scoop into bowls and serve.


You don't have to use corn, but it does make this more hearty.
If you want a thicker chili, only add 1 cup of chicken broth instead of 2.
