  1. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, and cook 2 minutes longer.
  2. Add chicken broth, chili powder, oregano, and cloves. Bring to a boil. Add chicken, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Uncover pot, and transfer chicken breasts to a cutting board. Add drained beans, and continue simmering soup while shredding chicken with two forks.
  4. Return shredded chicken to the pot with the cilantro, and return soup to a simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.


You can serve over rice or topped with crushed tortilla chips if desired.
