  1. In a large, stewing pot, place whole chicken, 1 1/2 cup sherry, stock, garlic, and onions. Simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, place green chilies in a roasting pan, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until skins begin to blacken. Peel and seed the peppers.
  3. Remove chicken from pot, and set aside to cool. Add green chilies and tomatoes to simmering stock.
  4. When chicken is cool enough to touch, remove the meat from the bones. Return meat to pot. Also, add 1 cup more sherry, and salt to taste. Simmer at least 30 minutes more. Serve with a little shredded cheese on top.

We found this to be really bland. Tons of salt and pepper needed and yet still bland. Definitely won't make this again.

Could not have made a better meal while being stranded in the house all day because of a blizzard! I had to use what I had on hand so I substituted a small can of fire roasted tomoatoes for the...
