  1. Heat the canola oil in a large dutch oven on medium heat.

  2. Cook the chicken and onions in the pot, stirring regularly, for about 5 minutes until the chicken is browned on both sides. Then remove from the pot onto a plate.

  3. Add the tomatillos and green chiles, then cook on high heat to char the tomatillos a bit in the oil.

  4. Add the chicken and onions back into the pot with the garlic, chicken broth, white beans, cumin, salt, pepper, and oregano. Mix well (this will break apart the tomatillos even more).
