    1 1/2lb. bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed
    2 tsp. salt
    4 cloves garlic
    5 peppercorns
    1 lb. tomatillos (about 8), husked
    2 serrano chiles
    1/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro
    2 tsp. vegetable oil
    1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
    8 corn tortillas (6" each)
    1 1/2 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


Place chicken in a large saucepan. Add 6 cups water, 1t sp. salt, 2 garlic cloves and peppercorns. Boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Remove chicken. Pull meat from bones; shred; set aside. Place tomatillos and chiles in a saucepan; cover with water; boil over medium-high heat 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Transfer to a blender; add remaining 2 cloves garlic and cilantro; blend until smooth, adding liquid if necessary. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
