White Bean Chicken Chili

I fixed White Bean Chicken Chili for dinner tonight and a couple of my fellow bloggers have asked for the recipe so here it is.

White Bean Chicken Chili
3 cans Great Northern Beans, undrained
3 cans chicken broth
1 tbls olive oil
2 onions, chopped
8 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can rotel tomatoes with green chilies
4.5 oz can green chilies, diced
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano (I left this out only because I didn't have any)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (I used chili powder instead)
8 chicken thighs, cooked and diced (original recipe called for 3 chicken breasts, cooked and diced)

sour cream
grated cheese

I boiled my chicken thighs in a pot of water until done then pulled the meat off the bone.  Then I took the 1 tbls of olive oil and sauteed the onion and garlic until translucent.  I used the stock from the pot I boiled the chicken in but you can use store bought chicken stock.  Combine the 3 cans chicken stock with all the other ingredients except the sour cream and grated cheese and simmer for 1-2 hours.  Serve with whatever kind of grated cheese you like and sour cream on top.
