  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat a medium pot (preferably oven safe) over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 10 minutes.

Add the chicken, sausage, tomatoes and green chilies, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer, cover and simmer 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily. Shred the chicken with two forks, leave to simmer.
