What you will need…

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 1 bag of shredded carrots
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Package of McCormick® White Chicken Chili Seasoning Mix
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce
  • 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (15 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) cans of any kind of white beans


In Pressure Cooker–  Add the oil and sauté the chicken while breaking it up with a wooden spoon. After about 5 minutes add the rest of the ingredients  and  place the lid on the pressure cooker, lock lid and switch the pressure release valve to closed. Press CANCEL and then press the SOUP/STEW button. Cook for 20 minutes.

Stovetop– Set a large pot over medium to medium-high heat and add the oil. Add the ground chicken and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Stir in the carrots, onion, celery, garlic, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until the veggies have softened. Add the chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits. Stir in the hot sauce, tomato sauce, and crushed tomatoes. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the veggies are tender and the chili has thickened to your desired consistency.

Add some shredded cheese and serve with your favorite corn chip.
