White Bean Chicken Chili

'White Bean Chicken Chili'
Source: Adapted from How To Simplify


1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cups cooked chicken shredded (I shredded a pre-cook rotisserie from the store)
2 cans Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1 can green chilies  (4 oz)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 box  chicken broth (32 oz)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Juice from 1 lime


1. In a large pot, saute the onion and cook until it starts to become translucent (3-4 minutes).

2. Once the onion is done, add shredded chicken, beans, corn, green chilies (with juice from can), cumin and oregano to the pot. Stir to combine all of the ingredients and then add the chicken broth.

3. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes to allow the broth to reduce. Add salt and pepper (to taste) and juice from one whole lime.

4. Leave simmering on stove until ready to serve.

Some serving ideas:

Sour cream, chopped cilantro, shredded Pepper Jack cheese, avocado or tortilla chips.
