6 Boneless, skinless half breasts, grilled and then sliced thin.
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 medium brown onion, peeled and chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 bunch cilantro, washed and chopped
1 lb fresh tomatillos, husked, cored, washed & quartered. (canned tomatillos can be used, but watch the sodium!!)
1 lb fresh chiles, stems removed, chopped.
(use Anaheims for milder flavor, Jalapeno for HOT..I like Pasillas)
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp Knorr Chicken Bouillon
approx. 2 cups water.
Add tomatillos, chiles, cilantro, cumin and bouillon.
Add just enough enough water to cover everything. Bring to a boil and simmer on low for at least one hour.
Using a hand blender, puree everything till almost smooth. (If you don't have a hand blender, use a potato masher, you'll just have chunkier chile verde.)
Add sliced chicken and simmer another 1/2 hour or till chicken is falling into shreds.
Number of Servings: 6
