This Instant Pot White Chicken Chili recipe as a delicious alternative to classic tomato-based chili. This healthy chili recipe is perfect for those following the Weight Watchers program (and anyone who wants to lose weight) since it is low in points.
Fast Instant Pot Turkey Chili
This is a dump and go Instant Pot recipe, which means there’s really just one step – put everything in the IP and press start.
This recipe is especially easy because it uses pre-cooked turkey breast, making it a great option after Thanksgiving or anytime you have already cooked chicken or turkey breast to use.
One of my other favorite uses for cooked turkey is this healthy turkey noodle soup that has incredibly flavor.
If you don’t have chopped turkey breast, chicken breasts works just as well. A quick hack is to use the breast from a store-cooked rotisserie chicken to really make this recipe fast and easy.
Make Chili in the Instant Pot
Chili is especially good in the Instant Pot because pressure cooking locks in the flavor. Plus, instead of hours simmering on the stove top, you’ll get the same delicious chili in a fraction of the time.
You can even make chili in the summer in your Instant Pot without heating the whole kitchen.
Weight Watchers Instant Pot White Chicken Chili Points
One of my favorite things about this Instant Pot White Turkey Chili is that it’s zero points.
Be sure you use chopped turkey breast in order to keep the points at zero or low. If you prefer, you can also brown ground turkey instead of using chopped.

Frequently Asked Questions about Chili
How do you make chili thicker?
To thicken it quickly use flour or corn starch, but don’t add it directly to the chili (If you do, the flour will clump and you’ll spend the next couple of hours trying to de-clump the clumps). In a bowl, add a tablespoon or two of flour and a cup of hot liquid from the chili. Whisk both until well combined. (For Weight Watchers members, keep in mind this adds additional points.)
What should I serve with chili?
There are so many options as side dishes to serve up with chili. Here are some ideas: Buttermilk corn bread, rice, pasta, hot dogs, french fries, onion rings, and crackers. Many people enjoy serving a side of cinnamon rolls every time they eat chili. You can also serve chili over cooked spaghetti or baked potatoes.
What toppings go with chili?
Some people like their chili plain or enjoy it loaded with toppings. Here are some suggestions for what to add to your chili: diced tomatoes, chopped avocado, diced onion, sliced scallions, shredded cheese, crumbled queso fresco, sliced jalapeno, sour cream, or cream cheese. Try serving chili with a toppings bar so everyone can add their own favorites.
