White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

By Traeger Kitchen

This chili is a fiesta of flavor, chock full chicken, white beans, and seasoned with salsa verde. It calls for cooked chicken, and while we think a Traeger-cooked chicken would be best, you can use meat from a store-bought rotisserie chicken, if you like. To get 5 cups of meat, you will need two small chickens or one large bird.
