Soak the beans in water to cover for 12 hours or overnight. Drain well and transfer to a 1 gallon pot. Add water to cover and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partly covered,until they are tender, about 1 ½ hours Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken and cook until it is no longer pink in the center Add the onion and cook until it begins to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. When the beans are tender, drain them and return to pot. Add the contents of the skillet, 4 cups of water or stock and the remaining ingredients. Simmer gently, uncovered, 1 to 1 ¼ hours, or until the beans are tender and the flavors blended, adding remaining water or stock if the chili is too thick.
