1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs – I prefer using the darker thighs because they have a little more fat = more taste
7 cups chicken stock (I use homemade chicken stock)
1 leek, sliced thinly
4 BellaFina peppers, diced (optional)
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 cup fresh corn kernels
1 14.5 oz can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Add the whole chicken thighs, chicken stock, leeks, peppers, and garlic to a slow cooker. Cook on low 6 hours, until chicken is pull-apart tender.

Take JUST the chicken thighs out of the slow cooker. I use a slotted spoon to remove the thighs and put them in a shallow bowl. Using two forks, pull the chicken apart so it is all shredded, then add it back to the slow cooker.

Add the cannellini beans, corn, salt & pepper, and cilantro to the slow cooker. Cook on low an additional 30-60 minutes and serve.

Can garnish with lime zest and cilantro leaves. A dollop of sour cream would be pretty delicious, too.
