"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." — Cyber Pana

1 (3 1/2) pound
whole chicken, cut into 6 pieces
fresh tomatillos, husks removed
dried California chile pods
dried red chile peppers
salt to taste
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!
I made the recipe as written. I loved it. I have a garden full of tomatillo's that are about to be made like this and froze.
