Spicy White Chicken Chili

"Created this on a whim after reading through a few recipes for ideas. Use a mix of boneless/skinless thighs and breasts. Cut into small pieces and sauté until brown on all sides. Put aside. Add onion, garlic, jalapenos, and bell pepper into the same skillet. Brown and once done add to a pot with the cooked chicken. Add in your favorite selection of chili beans (Pinto/Kidney/Northern), chicken broth, and some of the canned green peppers. Bring to a boil and then simmer. Serve with Monterey Jack, chopped green onion, and you are in heaven!"
