Chicken pieces are seared and then simmered in a tomatillo sauce. This is my mother in law's recipe from the state of Zacatecas, Mexico. Serve with warm tortillas and your choice of rice or beans as side. We recommend a cold cola pop to accompany your delicious meal.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place the tomatillos, California chilies, and red chile peppers into a small roasting pan or a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for about 20 minutes, turning frequently. If the chilies start to get too dark, remove them and place into a food processor or blender.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook, turning to sear evenly on all sides.
  3. Combine the tomatillos and chilies in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt to taste. Pour this mixture in with the chicken. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until chicken is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

The dish is a nice idea but the tomatillos have a very sourish flavor once roasted. You will need to cut the flavor with a small amount of suger.

This was a great recipe! I did put a tablespoon of sugar in the blender with the tomatillos and peppers but that is all I changed. When I tasted the sauce at first I thought WOW! this is hot but after it cooked it had just the right amount of spice! I made rice to eat with it!
