During culinary school I worked at a Mexican restaurant in Saranac Lake, NY, called Casa Del Sol. My favorite dish was the Chile Verde. In this version I simmer large chunks of chicken slowly in an exotic green sauce of tomatillos and chilies.

Directions

  1. Season chicken pieces with salt and black pepper on all sides.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, 2 to 3 pieces at a time, until browned on all sides, about 15 minutes total. Set aside.
  3. Place tomatillos, jalepeno peppers, garlic, cilantro, and chicken stock in a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-low heat in a Dutch oven. Stir in onion, cook and stir until onion is soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in cumin, oregano, and bay leaf; cook 1 minute.
  5. Place chicken over onion mixture in the Dutch oven. Pour in tomatillo mixture. Bring to a boil, decrease heat to low and simmer, covered, until the meat is tender and falling off the bone, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
  6. Stir in potatoes and cook, uncovered, until they are easily pierced with a fork, about 35 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste; serve garnished with sour cream.

Made this tonight using only bone in, skin on chicken thighs. I cooked as directed and once I added the potatoes I removed the chicken from the pot to take off the skin and bones, shredded the chicken and then replaced it in the pot to continue cooking with the potatoes. I am making burritos with it. It is very yummy! It could almost use some fresh cilantro and lime juice at the very end to give it a little more punch.

This recipe was flavorful. I will definately make it again. It was very simple to make. I used 3 jalapeno's because we like it hot but next time I'm going to use the 2 recommended in the recipe because it really was too hot.
