In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a chicken stew in a delicious tomatillo sauce. First, you’ll see how to make an easy sauce in a blender, combining tomatillos, fresh jalapenos, cilantro, garlic, and chicken stock. Then it’s just about preparing the onions and chicken with seasonings and sautéing to wake up the herbs and spices, before simmering everything with the blended tomatillo sauce. Let this cook for a nice long while, adding chunks of potatoes during the last half hour or so, and cooking until the meat is falling off the bone. Delicious!

I love taco-truck chicken tacos... They are very authentic, dont have the cheese & lettuce or even sourcream... They are served with little tiny tortillas and they have a yummy tangy sauce served with a lime wedge... I live in a town in Alaska and we do not have authentic Mexican food here & seriously craving a chicken taco like you can buy from a street vender in Mexico. Do you have any suggestions ?
