White Chicken Chili-Amanda Nemelka

I originally had this at a work potluck lunch and loved it so much I got the recipe. It's really easy to make and yummy! This makes a lot. Even if you half the recipe you it should still easily feed 4 people.
4-6 chicken breasts, boiled and cut into small pieces
8 cans (small) white beans
3 cans diced green chilies
1 bottle green chili verde (I've also just used green enchilada sauce in it works great too - large can)
1 container sour cream (16 oz)
1 can chicken broth
Cook chicken breasts first and then add to chili mix. Heat all together for 30 minutes or so on medium-medium high heat. Serve with tortilla chips and any garnish you would like.
