    1. Fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to the boil. Boil the chicken until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the chicken and place in a slow cooker.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Brown the onion and garlic in the hot oil, 5 to 7 minutes; scrape into the slow cooker.
    3. Add the black beans, cannellini beans, tomatoes with green chillies, passata, chicken stock, dark brown soft sugar, sweetcorn, vinegar, chilli powder, cumin, coriander, salt and cayenne pepper to the slow cooker. Cook on High until the beans are tender, 3 to 4 hours. Stir the diced green, red and yellow peppers into the chilli and cook another 20 minutes.
