Chef John's Green Chicken Chili
Make this easier version of chili verde using chicken and a tomatillo-based green salsa instead of roasting and pureeing fresh tomatillos. Note that this is a green chili made with chicken and not a chili made with green chicken. Sorry if this disappoints anyone. You can serve it with sour cream, avocado, cilantro, and corn tortillas or corn bread.
When selecting green salsas at the supermarket, make sure tomatillos are the first ingredient, followed by onion and chilies.
If using chicken breasts, only simmer until cooked through, otherwise they will get dry.
Add some chicken stock for a thinner chili, but be careful with the salt, as many ingredients in this recipe have salt included.
