2 tsp, or to taste
reduced-sodium chicken broth
uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

- Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion and peppers; sauté, stirring often, until softened, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, salt, cumin, coriander and oregano; stir and cook, 1 minute.
- Add broth, chicken and beans; increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate; let rest 5 minutes and then shred with two forks.
- Return shredded chicken to pot and stir in salsa verde, lime juice and cilantro; heat through. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Leftovers make a great filling for soft tacos or burritos.
