Instructions
  1. Add chicken to a 4-quart, heavy bottomed Dutch oven or stockpot. Add chicken stock and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Shred chicken with two forks and then add back to the liquid.
  2. Or option Crock Pot Chicken: cook chicken breast in crock pot on high for 2 hours or low for 3+ hours. This is great for cooking protein for more than one recipe. See instructions here.
  1. Add garlic and onion to stockpot, white beans, green chilis, dried oregano, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and chopped fresh oregano. Stir until well-combined. Taste for flavor and adjust to your preference.
  2. Simmer over low heat for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
