Crispy Braised Chicken With White Beans and Chile Verde

Chicken legs are browned and braised in a stew of green chiles and white beans. The key to a richly flavorful green chili is to peel the chilies and use their charred skins for the sauce base. [Photographs: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt]

Note: If Anaheim chiles are unavailable, use a mix of cubanelle and poblano peppers.
